Aubri – Burlingame, CA

We reached out to the Align Foundation for help as we started to see my son’s scoliosis increase around age 14. My son has cerebral palsy and a whole host of other diagnoses related to this, including scoliosis. In order to try to slow or even stop the progression of his scoliosis, and hopefully avoid the need for spinal fusion surgery, we met with the wonderful people at the Align Clinic to begin the process of getting a brace for him. Having a medically complex and disabled child is unbelievably expensive, so we were very grateful to the foundation for helping to fund the brace for our son. Though it’s too early to tell the impact it will have, we have seen him grow increasingly comfortable with wearing the brace and we are hopeful that it’s helping his prognosis.

Thank you
