My name is William Motzkin you see me with my girlfriend Kayla and her aunt. I would like to share my story.
I was born with water around the brain which is called Hydrocephalus. I was also born with Arnold Chiari Malformation Type II (ACM2) and Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele. ACM2 affects the learning part of my brain and has put me behind most people in education. Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele affects my spine, so I’m paralyzed from the knees down. I’ve had over 40 surgeries trying to improve my quality of life. I’m now 24 years old and living life to the fullest extent.
