Candace, FL

I am writing to thank you for this foundation’s generosity in helping us and helping so many people with your financial assistance program to cover part of the cost of my daughter’s WCR brace.

My family and I are very grateful to you and your team because you’ve made a great change in the life of our daughter, who was diagnosed with scoliosis at 9 years old.  She just turned 12 and loves gymnastics, just moved onto ballet, Jazz Funk and Acro and looks so beautiful. 

My sincere thanks to Lynn for mentioning the opportunity to apply to the Foundation for financial assistance.  This is one of those expenses you know in your heart you must somehow find your way to pay as it is the best option for your child, yet the thought of covering it would cause hardship. Lynn encouraged me to apply and I’m so glad I did! My daughter received her WCR brace several weeks after her measurements and has adapted quite well. She wore a Charleston brace before and this actually created an opposing thoracic curve which she did not have upon original diagnosis.  My husband and I are confident that her new WCR brace won’t just hold her curve, but hopefully decrease it while providing some derotation of her hips. We know we chose the correct brace and are so thankful for Risa’s Schroth physiotherapy sessions and wonderful coaching, Paul’s expertise and Lynn’s knowledge of financial assistance.

We are deeply grateful to the Align Scoliosis Foundation. Many thanks for impacting the life of our daughter and family in such a substantial way! You made this possible. We are forever grateful.
