    Exclamation Scoliosis Camp

    I think that scoliosis camp would be a great opportunity for all of us who have to deal with scoliosis, especially bracing. I know that our friends don't understand what we're going through, because no one can, unless they have had to deal with it. I know that I, like many other girls wearing a brace, often worry about how people are going to think, say, or act when they realize that we have scoliosis and wear a brace. I really hope that we can have a camp, because it would be a place where we could be ourselves and not have to worry about hiding our brace under piles of clothing or worrying about what others will think. A place where we can come together as scoli patients.. anyone agree?

    Hey Lauren,

    I tried to PM Joe, but his mailbox was full. I think camp is a great idea. My daughter, Rachel, would love it. She also loves Jesus! I love Jesus, too!
    God is so good. He makes all the difference in everthing!
    God has used scoliosis to strengthen and mold us. He's good all the time!On this forum these larger curves have not held forever in Spinecor,with an initial positive response followed by deterioration. With deterioration, change treatment.The first year she gained 4 or 5 inches and was stable at around 20/20 in brace, followed by rapid progression the next year.She is now 51/40 (Jan2008)out of brace (40/30 in Spinecor) and started at 38/27 out of brace(Jan2006.) Now in Cheneau.
