This Scoliosis Awareness Month, we want to highlight individuals who are making a difference online. If you search social media, you’ll find hundreds of accounts dedicated to living a successful life with scoliosis. It was hard to choose and we could never spotlight everyone, but we hope this list will give you a good start if you are seeking inspiration, knowledge, and ideas.
From Curvy Girls Scoliosis, which has chapters all over the world, to Paige Fraser, a successful ballerina who has danced in the Lion King and started her own Foundation — this list is full of people who represent and honor Scoliosis Awareness Month.
A special recognition also goes to Sydnee Lubar, our 2018 Young Spinal Champion of the Year, a young woman who is doing incredible work as an artist and advocate.
