"These past 3 days have been soo great. When I got scoliosis I thought it was the worst thing that ever could have happened, but now I feel blessed. I have met and became amazing friends with people from all around the US, Canada, and England that I would have never been able to have met otherwise. This Convention was such an amazing thing and I'm glad that I had the opportunity to come #CGScoli2014 #PowerOfYou"

Dear Robin, Terry, Leah and Rachel,
I just wanted to thank you for such an incredible event and for welcoming us to Curvy Girls. I can't believe it was a week ago already. I loved meeting everybody and receiving such great information and feedback. Francesca is still talking, remembering and applying everything that she learned. Rachel and Leah made such an impact on her way of thinking and seeing Scoliosis. She loved the group sessions and I loved the information I learned at the adult sessions. I can't thank you all enough!!!
Hugs, Fabiola and Francesca
"My first convention was more fun than I ever imagined! Not only did I learn new things about how to embrace my scoliosis but I also met so many new people who had gone through the same thing that I had. During the three days of the convention,
I became closer with so many people, closer than I am with people I have known since kindergarten.”

I believe these friendships will last forever. I can’t wait until next time!"

"It exceeded our expectations! From the workshops to the dinner/fashion show, there was a nice balance of fun, information sessions and relationship building. I thought it was great that the girls were separate and able to focus on topics specific to their well-being
and more about self-esteem and emotional support, while the parents had workshops on bracing, legal, advocating, etc."
