EXCLUSIVE: Spina Bifida Can’t Stop Harper Mae From Taking WDW By Storm!

Harper Mae isn't your typical Disney super fan, she is an extraordinary and inspirational Disney super fan! She was born in 2016 with a form of Spina Bifida called Myeloschisis, meaning her spinal cord failed to close and the nerves were left exposed. Now Harper handles both her Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus diagnoses like a total pro, and she hasn't let any of this slow her down. 

As a motivator for her to continue to walk and grow, her parents Fred and Erica Comparin, along with her big brother Kellan, decided to integrate her love of all things Disney directly in her therapy plan. They state in a post on their journey page Growing Up With Harper Mae, "Some of you may have noticed, we've been spending a lot of time at Disney. Some may think we are nuts and I would have to agree, but nuts for all the right reasons."
