In spite of The Born This Way Foundation charity event, this fundraiser is directed towards gaining money for improved treatment on scoliosis. Scoliosis is a disorder where there is a curving in the spine taking place anywhere throughout the vertebrae. One popular treatment for scoliosis is receiving a back brace to help straighten out the spine. This process, however, takes a very long time and has a chance of not correcting the spine. Moreover, this leads to the option of surgery in most patients. I for one, have been through both processes. The back brace was a very uncomfortable situation. I was always in fear of the back brace not being able to correct my spine. In the end, it did not. After over a year with the brace and it not correcting my spine, I was up for surgery with a 50 degree curvature. It was a very scary process. I do not regret it though, but I do wish there was a less stressful and scary way to treat scoliosis. I am happy to be creating this fundraiser for this disorder. I hope it could at least make a dent in the long run by donating to research funds. I am happy to be part of this charity event from The Born This Way Foundation. Thank you.
