This is my daughter Millie who is 14 years of age. She has been diagnosed with Scoliosis – a debilitating condition causing curvature of the spine. Usually this is corrected through the wearing of a brace for 20hrs a day but Millies condition has developed beyond this stage and urgent spinal surgery is necessary. An x-ray revealed a severe curve of 44 degrees. Bracing is ineffective past 40 degrees. Read more about Millie’s story here.
