John was born with spina bifida and runs the Social Media & Fan Club Logistics for Bri Bagwell. Spina Bifida is a birth defect that occurs in the womb during the first few weeks of pregnancy. It affects the nerves of the spine because the neural tube does not develop properly and results in damage to the nerves along the spine. It affects anywhere from 1,500 to 2,000 babies each year. It can range from mild to severe, depending on location and complications like walking and mobility, orthopedic, bowel and bladder problems, and hydrocephalus. Sometimes, many surgeries are necessary. The goal of treatment is to improve health and quality of life with community participation the ultimate goal.
