Join Us for the Walk-N-Roll Twitter Party for Spina Bifida!

Laura Tellado, known as Laurita by her friends, was born with Spina Bifida in Puerto Rico in 1986 with myelomeningocele, the severest form of spina bifida.  In 1990, her family moved to Orlando, Florida in order to give her the best possible care. Our Los Tweens team- including the kids- met Laurita en vivo earlier this year and it has been a wonderful relationship ever since. Tweens are in such a difficult stage with accepting themselves and others, so learning how to support other tweens facing life challenges is extremely importante! And given the statistics regarding Spina Bifida among diverse communities, we need to get informed and supportive!

  1. Laurita, you’re an inspirational porlife of courage and self giving. Your confidence resonates much more than you realize. You inspire others. You will reconnect with yourself and come to peace with yourself and realize how powerfully advanced you are. Many people around you see it, you just need to sit back, look inside and realize it. The setbacks, pain and disabilities you’ve experienced are nothing compared to what you have in positive influences and advancement as you move forward. I found your post moving and inspiring and will share it with others who have experienced similar issues, especially with labels.Don’t be so hard on yourself, there’s always someone out there more than willing to be hard on you without having to add to it.Be the hero that you are!
