On July 5, 2004, Deangelo McCormick was born with the most common birth defect in the United States, Spina Bifida. Spina Bifida is a complex neural tube defect that requires lifelong observation and management with the help of a team of doctors. Although Kenida was devastated that her child was born with this disability, she did not allow it to consume her family and steal the prosperous life, destined for her son. Yes There Is Hope – A Parent’s Guide To The World Of Spina Bifida was written as a result of Kenida’s experience in caring for Deangelo. It provides an in-depth look at the disability and is an extensive source of information for families to provide a safe and loving home for a child with Spina Bifida.
