Congratulations on your graduation. And your successful recovery!

There is an advantage to being a nurse with scoli helping scolis recover from surgery. I think that I would have felt much better in the hospital, if I could have had that "scoli nurse", to talk to at the time.

Set those goals, and go for it.

Wow, Kara! You have so much to be proud of...

What do you plan to do after high school? I'm very happy that your appointment went well and that you made it through your surgery with such success. Good for you!

Congratulations on finishing high school and having a good follow-up today! The whole world is open to you and you've overcome your scoliosis at such an early age.

Best Wishes,
