Hi, my name is Elizabeth, but most people call me Lizzy. I found out on Christmas Eve 2015 that the doctors wanted me to use a brace for the next few years because of the curve in my back. I was nervous and kind of excited. I did not know anyone else with scoliosis, so I felt quite alone until I found Curvy Girls. I love being the Leader of CG Northern CO because now I can make sure no other girls feel the way I did when I was first diagnosed.
This past summer I had surgery on my spine. Despite wearing my brace and doing scoliosis exercises faithfully for four years, my spine continued to curve. At first this was hard to accept but now I have grown stronger and love helping others. This summer I will attend my third International CG Convention in New York. Thanks to the generosity and care from all my friends at Zimmer BioMet, I will be able to bring more girls with their moms to our Convention this summer.
