Preparations continue in my efforts to raise money for the Scoliosis Association UK on Saturday 29th June International Scoliosis Awareness Day. You can find out more about my plans from my blog post yesterday.
Cake Sale preparations
This time I have deviated from cakes and made some special Sweet William Seed Paper Shapes to sell. My niece and I made these last weekend, they were very easy to do. If you are wondering how we made them I will share the instructions with you soon. Today I have been busy packaging them up ready to sell to raise money for the SAUK.
What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine, in which the spinal column can also twist, pulling the ribcage out of position. Although many people have not heard of the condition it is surprisingly common, with three to four children per 1000 needing specialist supervision. Scoliosis is not a disease. It just means that in an otherwise healthy person the spine is curved or twisted. It is not infectious or contagious and it does not develop as a result of anything the adult, child, or its parents did, or failed to do.
The Scoliosis Association (UK) aims to provide advice, support and information to people with scoliosis and other spinal conditions, including kyphosis and lordosis.
