Hi, My name is Hallie, and I’m 13 years old. I am very active and I like to hike, golf, jet ski, and kayak. I am on the golf and cheerleading teams at my school.
I first found out about my scoliosis when I was 12 in January of 2018 when I went to the doctor and during a check-up she noticed a curve. I only had a 10 degree curve, but our small town hospital didn’t have specialists who worked with scoliosis. So we went out to Seattle Children’s Hospital. All we’d known was that I have scoliosis. It was there we learned that I had nothing to worry about since I was almost done growing.
I wish I’d had someone who has it to help me through the life changing thing that was found. But it shouldn’t be a life-changing thing that stops your adventures. It should only be a detail. I’d wish someone had told me that sooner. I want to help other girls through their journey. I think that’d be amazing.
