My Story


I am Garrett and this is my sister Peighton.  Thank you for visiting our site!  Please read our story!

I was born with Spina Bifida, have a VP shunt and reflux.  I am paralyzed from the waist down. My legs don't work too well, so I use a wheelchair to get around! Garrett has Spina Bifida, a VP shunt and Arnold Chiari Malformation. His medical history is very complex to say the least! He has had 64 surgeries and procedures. His zest for life, humor and smile draw people to him! 

Garrett loves swimming, playing in the sand, sled hockey, downhill skiing, playing Xbox, listening to music, watching Glee, Family Guy and any type of Ghost Adventure shows!  He also like hanging with his friends.

Peighton loves listening to music, watching American Idol, MN Twins, MN Vikings, Glee and pretty much ALL the shows on ABC Family!  She also likes hanging out with her friends.

They have a black Mini Schnauzer named Sophie and a white Mini Schnauzer named Daffy that they both adore! 

Both are very smart, loving, compassionate, funny and beautiful kids!

God is good!

PLEASE remember to sign their guestbook!
