Meet Kid Captain Adam Arp
Adam’s parents discovered when he was still in utero that Adam would be born with several birth defects and chronic conditions, including spina bifida, hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain), Chiari malformation (brain tissue extending into the spinal cord), and many others.
“Helping Adam navigate through his shoulder and back pain, teaching him breathing techniques for his anxiety, and getting Adam back on track with going to school was a huge accomplishment,” she says.
Now a sophomore, Adam likes pro wrestling, TikTok, video games, the Miami Dolphins, and anything Iowa Hawkeyes. He is an avid football card collector, participates in choir and wheelchair track, and has been high school basketball and football sports manager.
