A Patient. A Volunteer. A Fighter.
My name is Martin Davis, and I was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus. But above all, I was born a fighter. Throughout my life I have had many surgeries, doctor visits, hospital stays, and complications. I know many of you have gone through a similar journey; yet, what unites us more than our battles is an organization that guides us through the complicated maze of living with these types of birth defects.
The Walter E. Boehm Birth Defect Center has been the biggest support system - other than my family, of course - that has blessed my life. It is not just an organization that provides funds, medical care, counseling or meal vouchers, it is an extended family, supporting us when times are tough and celebrating when times are good.
