I live in Yuma, AZ with my parents, dog, and 3 brothers. I love basketball, exercising, and animals. I am also a vegetarian!

I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was 11. At the time it was very slight, so it didn’t seem like a big deal. My doctor said that bracing was not really an option for me. By the next year, my curve had significantly increased, so I was referred to a surgeon in Phoenix. At first we just kind of watched the curve, and it seemed like it had stalled out. Then by my latest appointment on June 3rd, it had increased by 13 degrees. I had surgery scheduled for July 7th, but due to COVID it was canceled. As of now I am waiting on a new surgery date.

I love the idea of helping other girls who are going through what I’m going through. I know it is a scary and stressful event in people’s lives, so I want to help!
