Sammy Rhodes

Here is an interesting article about 9-year-old Sammy Rhodes who doesn't let Spina Bifida slow her down.


Sometimes people can inspire others by just being themselves.

That is exactly what 9-year-old Sammy Rhodes effortlessly does every day of her life.

Born with myelomeningocele spina bifida, where part of the spinal cord is on the outside of the body, Sammy was not expected to ever be able to walk, let alone ride horses, swim and play golf.

Yet that is exactly what this energetic, sports-crazed little girl does with her free time -- often overcoming obstacles and developing her own techniques to do them, because, for Sammy, not playing is not an option.
