Skylar Thomas's Scolismart Fund

What a difference 6 months can make. Skylar my beautiful tiny dancer. Skylar is 14 years old and was diagnosed with Idiopathic scoliosis she has an 80 degree curve in her spine. Not only is it a severe curve it is also curving in a different direction from 60% of most idiopathic curves. We where told Skylar would need surgery asap, AND that she would never dance again. For most this would not mean anything but to my Tiny Dancer it means everything Sky has been dancing since the age of three and plans on being a dance teacher for children as a full time career after collage. Skylar ALSO has a brain slope on the left side so that part of her brain is very close to the base of her skull. Making the surgery even more risky the normal. Four rods and 135 screws is what we where told. She would not longer be able to have an MRI to check on her brain slope and most likely have to learn to walk again. Only fixing about 40% of the curve......Then we found out about ScoliSMART Clinics. The Doctor at the ScoliSMART Clinic in Litiz Pennsylvania told us about the program they have, that would fix the curve WITHOUT surgery and also study the neurotransmitters in her brain to see which ones are not communicating properly, because when the neurotransmitters are working properly they also help correct the curve in the spine by reminding the body how it works. Its amazing how much we have learned from ALL the doctors we have seen in the last 8 months. Even better was the look on Skylar's beautiful face that we had found another option for her spine. Safely with very little risk BUT a lot of work on our part, 20 min a day of home therapy and a suite she will also have to wear while doing activities. And yes!!!!!! Skylar can get back to Dancing!! Problem.....Insurance will NOT cover any of it and  All will be out of pocket, Two weeks at the ScoliSMART clinic is needed and all the home Training equipment plus the scolisuite.  We are driving to PA from FLA and will have to stay in PA for 13 days. I am so thankful and amazed with this group of Doctors that started this clinic I hope soon the are able to help ALL with this disease. Thank you for ALL your support and prayers. Please check out ScoliSmart Clinc's we need more! One in every state! Hope someone can also be helped by spreading the word about this clinic. Thank you a million times just for reading!!  Skylar and Stephanie
