Project Ended 09/21/2015
I would like to voice my compassion for my 17-year-old daughter who needs help now with her scoliosis. Unfortunately, there is little to no easy access help for people with scoliosis. Many families are forced to deal with the condition as best they can on their own. Physicians take the watch and wait approach, if the spinal curve progresses quickly and aggressively then surgery is recommended, but there is no guarantee that after surgery one will have less pain, in fact, as the years go by, many have worse pain.
Funds will be used to cover the cost of at least two, week long, intensive care treatment program scoliosis camps, which include, but are not limited to, nervous system elongation and elasticity protocols; root cause treatment, scoliosis nutritional / metabolic exam, consult and management; genetic root causes and treatment, multi-level custom 3-D spinal weighting systems, schroth based posture and activities of daily living, brace evaluation, as well as, 90 day case management period. The advanced 1-week follow-up scoliosis treatment course takes place after 90 days of the home treatment program is completed. Again, all is time sensitive, the longer it takes us to get my daughter in for treatment the more treatment care she may require. We are out of area patients, the facility is 7 hours from where we live, so car and hotel are other significant expenses. Please find it in your heart to give, knowing that you are truly making a difference in the life of a beautiful teenage girl. Thank you for your compassion and generosity. Rhonda (mom)
