About us

Hello, we are Danny and Meetra. Danny is 30 and lives in Brazil and Meetra is 26 and lives in the United States. We were both born with Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele and Hydrocephalus. Our long distance story began when I met my boyfriend (Danny) on Instagram, while I searched for ideas to better my fitness while living with a disability. I came across Danny's picture where he was doing the plank. I took the chance and commented on a random fellow spina bifida individuals plank photo, even though I knew how to do the plank. He responded almost immediately and we started talking more and more gradually on Instagram messages and then soon after we added on all the other sites like Facebook, Skype and WhatsApp. We spoke for 6 months, before he came and visited me in Wisconsin so we could meet for the very first time. It was the most amazing 10 days of both of our lives. From the moment I picked him up at the airport, I knew we shared a special bond and that I had found my special someone. I had not only found my best friend, but my partner in crime, my first love and my one and only. We both have been living our lives not letting Spina Bifida live us. Nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it. We hope to inspire so many other individuals through our fitness, videos and photos that if you're going through a similar situation, that nothing is impossible.
