Usually when an earlier task that was passing fails later in the challenge, it's from a syntax error. In this case it's probably from this line:

print "I am" + summary + "days old!"

In the more recent versions of Python, using print without parentheses is no longer allowed.

The challenge is just looking for the variable summary to be set properly to the string so you can get rid of all the calls to print and remove the cast to a string on days

I really appreciate your help. Thanks so much.
