Andy Barlow was born and raised in the small town of Hanover, ME. Born with a condition called Spina Bifida (any abnormal development of the bones in the spine with or without involvement of the brain) back during a time in history when there was very little medical knowledge and/or treatment for this degenerative, disabling condition causing him paralysis from the waist down.
When Andy was a small boy he could walk and play like any young boy, but during his school years he became dependent on crutches. As time moved on the disabling effects of his condition took its toll. Andy now depends on a wheel chair to get around.
