Blake Mompher, five, from Prospect, Ohio, was diagnosed with spina bifida before he was born. Spina bifida is a birth defect that occurs when the spinal cord doesn’t form properly, which can cause walking and mobility problems. Blake was practicing walking in fall 2018 but had a setback after he was hospitalized with two separate infections in November and December. He began practicing again three weeks ago and used a walker at his preschool graduation ceremony on Saturday (left). None of his classmates or their parents knew and Blake received a standing ovation as he received his diploma.
