When Lauren Citro tries to go to a playground with her family, she can run into a problem.
“When I see all that sand, I'm like, ‘I'm going to have to carry him across,’” she says. “It's not going to go well.”
Citro is referring to her son Brody. Brody has spina bifida, a birth defect in which the spinal cord doesn’t form properly. He uses mobility aids like sticks and a walker to get around.
