Anashe

Hyyy! My name is Anashe. I am 14 years of age. I really enjoy playing hockey as well as reading.

 

I was diagnosed with Scoliosis at the age of 11. My parents had noticed a hump on my back. We then visited Dr. Mandizvidza, (Spine and Bone Specialist). He explained about the condition and how surgery was the only option because of the large serious curve in my spine. My Scoliosis got worse with time and I began to have lower back pain and my posture became really horrible. I separated myself from others because I somehow felt different. My surgery was scheduled to be on the first of July 2021. 

 

The surgery was really successful. My posture has improved.  I have no back pain anymore and I am a happy person. Thanks to an amazing group of nurses and doctors (Drs. Mandizvidza, Ngwende, and Nyoni) :-)

 

I want to raise awareness on this condition and support girls battling with emotional stress caused by the Scoliosis.
