Hi! My name is Jennifer Gill, but please call me Jen, with one "n", if you please. You see, 51 years ago I was born with a disability called Spina Bifida. This is a disability in which the spine, in the womb, doesn't develop properly and (in my case) it curved to the left. This is a very basic, generalized description, but you get the idea. Aside from a spinal fusion the summer between kindergarten and first grade to keep my spine from growing any more curved, I was pretty lucky to have as normal a childhood as possible.
