Spina Bifida Kansas City is made up of children and adults with Spina Bifida, as well as parents, guardians, family, friends, healthcare providers, and other supporters. Starting very early in life, our children spend significant amounts of time in clinics and hospitals. Frequent medical tests, surgeries, visits to therapists and specialists, and hospitalizations are common. SBKC is dedicated to helping families affected by Spina Bifida emotionally, educationally, and financially. Financial support is given to families through a number of funds. Emotionally we offer support through organized social functions, fundraising events, chapter meetings, educational programs, and our office staff.
