Cynthia, Simon and Jasmyne, AU

I want to express my deepest gratitude to the Align Scoliosis Foundation for their incredible support of my daughter, Jasmyne. Diagnosed with scoliosis in 2020 during the peak of COVID, we initially struggled with a poorly fitted Scolicare brace that caused nothing but problems.

Determined to find a better solution, I began researching braces. Unfortunately, options in Australia were limited at the time.  However, I discovered the WCR brace and contacted Grant Wood.  Thankfully, Grant offered to provide Jasmyne with a brace, but there were hurdles.  Firstly, no one in Australia fit WCR braces, and secondly, border closures prevented us from traveling to the US.

Grant, however, didn’t give up.  He proposed finding a qualified practitioner in Australia he could train on fitting WCR braces.  This led us to the Perth Scoliosis Centre.  Together, the three of us became the first recipients of WCR braces in Australia, pioneering the way for others to access this life-changing technology.

Fast forward two years, and Jasmyne needed a new brace.  Unfortunately, the cost was prohibitive.  Thankfully, the Align Scoliosis Foundation stepped in and generously provided the brace we desperately needed.

Today, Jasmyne is in a critical growth stage, and thanks to the WCR brace and the Align Scoliosis Foundation’s support, her curve is holding steady.  We are eternally grateful for this godsend that has made a world of difference in Jasmyne’s life.

Thank you
