Today is the day !
     It's time to rise and spine!  June 24th is International Scoliosis Awareness Day! Scoliosis is a condition where your spine curves instead of growing straight.  Bracing and practicing scoliosis specific exercises are the most common forms of treatment, but if the curves progress too much, the spine must be corrected surgically.  Scoliosis is more commonly found in girls but can affect boys too, and is usually discovered at a young age.

     Curvy Girls is a support network for girls dealing with this condition as well as their parents, helping everyone involved get through what can be an emotional number of years.

     Help me raise money for the Curvy Girls International Convention for girls like me dealing with scoliosis.  Walks are being held all around the world.  I am participating in the New York Straight Walk With the Curvy Girls to raise awareness for this condition.
