View Full Version : Support Group

I am the mom of a 12 yr. old girl who was diagnosed
with scoliosis in November 2003 and has been wearing the
Boston brace since Thanksgiving. When we were told she
would need this brace, her first comment was "I don't know
anyone else who wears one!"
Hence my request....
I am asking if anyone is interested in starting a support
group on the North Shore of Boston.... I realize the effort
involved in doing this but the value far out weighs it ...

Please contact me on the forum or follow up with Joe O'Brien
as he is aware of this.

Hi! I'm not in that area but more power to you! i think a support group for your area would be great! it's hard to deal with scoliosis at our age but it makes it easier when you can talk to others that have it aswell. Good Luck!!!

I don't live in that area, but I'm always willing to talk to scoliosis patients. I wore a brace for four years before recieving surgery five weeks ago. Feel free to email me, or let your daughter email me with questions at dapsbounce8@yahoo.com

Wow that's great! I would LOVE to get involved with a support group..that's probably why we all registered on this site! I think it's great that you're doing that for your daughter..we all felt like that when we first saw the huge chunk of plastic for the first time!!
