Spina bifida: a developmental congenital disorder caused by the incomplete closing of the embryonic neural tube. Some vertebrae overlying the spinal cord are not fully formed and remain unfused and open. If the opening is large enough, this allows a portion of the spinal cord to protrude through the opening in the bones. There may or may not be a fluid-filled sac surrounding the spinal cord. Folic acid is essential for the pregnant mother.
Upper Cervical Stenosis It is not unusual to have Fibromyalgia along with spinal disorders.

Wave Rock is a natural rock formation located east of the small town of Hyden in Western Australia. The 'wave' formation was formed 60 million years ago and the shape of the rock is not caused by a wave phenomenon, rather its rounded wave-like shape was formed by subsurface chemical weathering followed by removal of the soft weathered granite by fluvial erosion, thus the weathering occurred below ground level before it was exposed.

A megalodon tooth stuck in a whale vertebrae. This is the most badass fossil in existence.
A cross on the back of my neck, just below my cerebellum, lining my spinal cord. The cerebellum controls voluntary movement, balance, equilibrium and fine motor skills. The spinal cord is connected to the brainstem which basically controls all vital bodily functions. So I feel it is appropriate, symbolically at least to have a cross where my actions are determined.
