Hi, my name is Reid. I am 8 years old and have been diagnosed with a rare condition.
Motto: Building Strength
Champion Teammate: David Mebane
High School Team: Dripping Springs Baseball
Reid was diagnosed with x-linked Creatine Transporter Deficiency (CTD) at age 2-½ after searching rigorously for answers to his unexplained symptoms. He battles daily with muscular and movement disorders, global developmental delay, expressive language delay, intellectual disability, autistic behaviors, and seizures.
Reid's disease impacts the whole family as we struggle to cope with the long-term mental and physical effects. CTD is a rare, untreatable, disorder and one of three cerebral creatine deficiency syndromes.
He will live a life of constant care, but he will smile, and play and love. He infects us with his energy and brings us joy.
