Sure to u, my life seems quite normal.
But I have learnt to adapt and hide my back, due to people staring and kids making fun of me and yes, i have become quite excellent in Choosing the right clothing, so to u, I look quite normal.
Sure, I always have a smile on my face. Even when I battle to breathe because of the pain in my chest. Because as long as I have breath in my lungs I have a purpose and a reason to smile.
17 years old
Diagnosed with Scoliosis in 2019
Requires spinal fusion
No medical aid, as his mom is a single mom and his Father is deceased.
State hospital has a long waiting period. Private Dr confirm that surgery is the only way forward and that this needs to be done quite urgent.
Please helps us give Eldin the future he deserves. He is constantly in pain. He is also quite self conscious about his back as it is quite evident. He is unable to take part in sport or any straining excerise, due to his back. Sitting for longer periods are becoming a challenge. This makes going to school a challenge due to not being able to carry his bag, having pain daily and then still having to sit for long periods of time.
Let's make a change, let's give him a chance.
