When Skyler came into this world, he was a healthy, full-term baby. But complications shortly after his delivery resulted in a brain injury, which led the Seymour family to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Skyler spent the first two months of his life in the NICU, fighting for his life. After his first birthday, Skyler received the diagnosis of cerebral palsy.Since then, Skyler has continued to receive world-class care at Nationwide Children’s. Along with that care, his family has also been a part of Nationwide Children’s, learning about cerebral palsy and what it means to live with it.

While Skyler lives with cerebral palsy, he still fully participates in life. “He is an inspiration to all who meet him,” says Brittney, Skyler’s mother, “His diagnosis definitely does not stop him! He plays baseball for the Miracle League and is part of a running group called myTeam Triumph. He even ran his first 5K with his dad last fall. He is an amazing kid!”

Let Skyler’s journey inspire you from the very beginning – he will be kick-starting the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Columbus Marathon & ½ Marathon this year on Mile One.
