Kaitlyn McAfee, a December 2017 graduate from Collegiate High, is one of the top runners-up in Tennessee for the 2018 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. Ms. McAfee will receive an engraved bronze Distinguished Finalist medallion to commemorate the prestigious award.
Ms. McAfee became involved in fundraising for scoliosis research after her scoliosis diagnosis in 2012. “I felt ashamed and alone,” she said. “However, I knew I could not be the only one going through this, so I started a support group called Curve Scoliosis.” She started the group in hopes of connecting others dealing with scoliosis so that they would not have to feel alone.
Scoliosis can be treated, but not cured.
