My story

[p]Hello everyone thanks for visiting my page! Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine that can affect people at any point in their lives and if not correctly diagnosed and treated, can be very damaging.[/p] [p]Scoliosis is something close to my heart with my younger sister being diagnosed when she was 12. When she was 14 she had her first major spinal surgery that unfortunately went wrong following various complications with her heart. She went on to have a further 9 operations on her spine, spending months at a time in hospital often unable to do simple things like eat and speak. This also meant missing 4 years of education which was an incredibly difficult time for her and our family. Scoliosis UK were a god send in this period and the support and advice they gave us was hugely important in my sisters recovery. [/p] [p]My sister is a phenomenal person; despite the struggles she faced she’s now training to be a Vet at Bristol University living her dream whilst being her exceptionally weird and happy self. I thought it was only right to put myself through some suffering to try and give something back to the charity and hopefully help others in the future have a more straightforward ordeal than Nicola. [/p] [p]Any donations are hugely appreciated no matter how small. [/p] [p][/p] [p]Now for the training! Wish me luck...[/p]
