David "The Bubble Boy" Vetter
Birth: Sep. 21, 1971
Death: Feb. 22, 1984

Folk Personality. Known as "The Bubble Boy," Vetter suffered from an immune disease, called Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID). The disease required him to live his life in a sterile environment that coined the name, "The Bubble Boy." His death at age 12 was attributed to a treatment he was undergoing for his condition. Several movies and books have been written about David's life including, "The True Story Of David The Bubble Boy" (1995), by Mary Ida Murphy. (bio by: K)

Free without the bubble now and enjoying wings perhaps. I am so grateful that your life and the things you endured are helping children everywhere. God bless your family and those that miss you.
