As a passionate basketball and tennis player, Olivia is a walking – and dribbling, and backspinning – testament to how active you can be with scoliosis. And as passionate as she is about sports, she's just as passionate in her belief that scoliosis doesn't have to slow you down. Meet with her and you quickly become a believer, too.
Like her older sister Olivia, Charlotte is a very active young lady, pursuing basketball, tennis and theater with energy and confidence. And though some so young might be discouraged by the idea of dealing with scoliosis, it has not dimmed her outlook in the slightest. Her positivity will rub off on you.
Halee has a deep knowledge of scoliosis as both she and her mother have the condition. In Halee's case, it has hardly slowed her down at all. She leads an incredibly active life, and she's ready to help you understand how you can, too.
In many ways, Abby is your typical young lady, living with a packed and demanding schedule. The brace she wears is the one difference in her life. While it's not something she enjoys, she's learned how to deal with it. And can help you do so, too.
In Katie's view, scoliosis is an inconvenience, but not much more. In fact, she kind of enjoys answering questions about her condition and her brace. The brace is uncomfortable at times, but it doesn't slow her down. Her positive outlook is bound to be uplifting to you.
Danielle is Katie's mother, and like her daughter, has a very positive, upbeat outlook. Any parent whose child is facing scoliosis will find Danielle's perspective very encouraging.
