Hi, my name is Roman. I am 3 years old. I was born 4 months early as a surviving twin at 1 pound 11 ounces. I have Hydrocephalus and Cerebral Palsy. I have had 3 brain surgeries to place a shunt when I was very small. I have been doing great since then. I take it all in stride. I have come a long way. It took me a long time to sit on my own and use my right hand. I work hard every single day to gain mobility. I do squats and stretches to strengthen my body and I love to swim. From all of my hard work, I now can use my gold walker to run around with my little brother. I love music, especially Johnny Cash and Chuck Berry. My mom says I'm an old soul. I love life and I smile all the time. I am preparing for a life changing surgery called SDR to help with my future mobility and it will help me to hopefully have less surgeries in the future. I stand in my walker and dance with one foot and play the air guitar 🎸 and it's so much fun. I also love fashion. My mom wants people with unique abilities to be seen more in the media. My mom and dad say that I can and I will ❤️ even if it takes me longer . Thank you for letting me share my story
