Peyton was born with Myelomeningocele, the most serious form of Spina bifida. It's a birth defect where the backbone and spinal canal do not close before birth. The doctors at the hospital where he was born transferred him to U-M C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.
Since then Peyton has had eight different surgeries, various neurological procedures and procedures to help his lateral club feet. Despite all the surgeries, all the therapy and everything he's been through, Peyton is a happy, active 4 1/2 year old with a love for life...and golf.
