From highly disabled at birth
To highly successful in life
Sascha very successfully overcame more life challenges than a lot of us could even imagine. He was born in 1978 severely disabled with the worst form of Spina-Bifida (Myelo-Meningocele) with an excess of fluid in his head (a Hydrocephalus), and with Arnold-Chiari II syndrome (the base of his skull is misaligned with his cervical vertebrae that should – according to the medical books – render him mentally challenged)
To put it simply, according to the medical community, he should have never walked, been paralyzed from the waist down, been mentally challenged, and been dead by the age of 7.
Moreover, Sascha was the son of a mother believed to suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder coupled with Narcissism and she was also a hypochondriac. His father died from a heart attack when Sascha was only 16 years old. At school, he was the target of constant bullying.
These are only some of the challenges he overcame very successfully to be thriving in every way.
