Hi, my name is Nicholas Wendt. I was born on July 21, 1996 -- so I'm just a little kid. That's my picture below. I'm the one wearing shades.
I have a rare genetic condition called Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID), also known as the "Bubble Boy" Disease. That means I was born without an immune system. Right now , I can't have contact with too many people, especially kids.
I'm doing really well since my bone marrow transplant in April 1997. Someday soon I'll be well enough to play with other children and go to school.
Until then, I rely on the company of friends from television, books and videos. I designed this web site (with some help from grownups) so you could meet my friends----and me. Just click on your favorite characters, and have fun!
