Victoria is a 13-year-old girl from Ghana. She is very energetic and enjoys reading and being with her friends. Victoria’s father is unemployed but has brought her to our institutional partner, the Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine (FOCOS) in Ghana, because of his concern for his daughter’s health.
Victoria is having trouble standing upright and is beginning to feel significant discomfort due to her scoliosis. Her spine is curved. Her condition has progressed quite rapidly over the past year and is expected to worsen.
In order to fix the curve in Victoria’s spine, the doctors will fuse two of her vertebrae using a procedure called a PSF T2-S1. With this procedure, doctors expect Victoria to make a complete recovery! Let’s raise $1,500 for Victoria’s spinal surgery so that she can share her energetic personality pain-free!
