It’s about improving the well being of people with scoliosis so that we may be there for each other even when it feels like no one else is there. My goal is to help build confidence and to offer encouragement for kids, teens and adults with scoliosis.
Famous people with scoliosis - Rebecca Romijn
Most famous for her role in “Ugly Betty,” Romijn has also appeared in several X-men movies, as well as an episode of “Friends.” In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, she said:
“Everyone knows what it feels like to feel different from everyone else. When I was thirteen I was diagnosed with scoliosis and I shot up like six inches over the next four or five years and my body was just in so much pain and nobody told me that exercise would have helped that. I mean, I was like, in fact that was why I became a theatre geek, because I stayed away from sports all together, cause I was so self conscious and in so much physical pain from my body and now I do Pilates, which actually helped tremendously with scoliosis because scoliosis is something that is always there.”
