Hi, my name is Jessica Lesslie and here is my story about scoliosis. Since the age of 13, I have been on a long rollercoaster ride of scoliosis. It all started when I got back from Coolendal camp, eager to get home and see my Mum after the long and tiring week under the stars. All it took was a fortunate bend over and Mum noticed the ridge hump on my back. Her first impression was that I had potentially injured myself at camp. Confused, we went to the doctors to get it checked out, the doctor ordered an X-Ray for the next day and from that afternoon, little did I know that my life had changed for the worse but also for the positive. Our GP called Mum that same afternoon and said that we needed to see a paediatric orthopaedic surgeon urgently.
