An Extraordinary Goal


NAME: Ramsés
CONDITION: Transverse myelitis
LOCATION: Shriners Children’s México City

Ramsés, 16, has been a patient at Shriners Children’s México City for nine years. His diagnosis of transverse myelitis has not prevented him from playing the sports he loves such as shot put, discus and adapted soccer. Above all, it hasn’t stopped him from achieving his dreams.

Ramsés has worked hard in recent years, and he has the hardware to show for it. He won a silver medal in 2021 and a bronze medal in 2022 in tournaments held in Toluca. ln the state competition held in the city of Nezahualcóyotl, his team won second place in adapted soccer.

Now he is focusing on the 2023 adaptive soccer World Cup in Colombia and the Paranacional CONADE 2023, two very important events that will allow him to achieve his biggest dream yet – representing his home country of México.

Ramsés uses his success to inspire others to achieve greatness. “To all the children who probably think they can’t do a sport, I can tell you that, of course you can! Just remember, while there is life, hope will exist.”
