National Scoliosis Month Curvy Girls Campaign
Boston Orthotics & Prosthetics, formerly known as Boston Brace/NOPCO, understands the importance of helping kids cope with the challenge of wearing a scoliosis brace. Organizations such as Curvy Girls, which are geared towards helping this cause, are very important to us. Because of this, we have decided to support Curvy Girls during Scoliosis Month with a financial contribution to their efforts.
What is Curvy Girls?
Curvy Girls is an international network of peer-led scoliosis support groups that help girls deal with the emotional issues that may arise when they are diagnosed with scoliosis and told they need to wear a brace.
How will Boston O&P raise money to help Curvy Girls?
For the 2nd year in a row, Boston O&P will donate $100 for every incremental scoliosis brace we provide in June 2018 over what we provided in June the previous year. Boston O&P has committed to a $5,000 minimum donation to Curvy Girls, no matter how many braces we manufacture.
Why is Boston O&P doing this?
At Boston O&P, we realize that though scoliosis is a physical condition, it also has a significant psychological impact. Adolescents are already dealing with a wide range of emotions, and wearing a brace can add to the anxiety they feel on a daily basis. While we can help with the medical issue, we think the emotional support Curvy Girls offers is equally important.
How can I help?
It’s easy! All you have to do is order more Boston Braces from us. For every incremental brace ordered during Scoliosis Month this year that is above June 2017’s total, we will contribute $100 to Curvy Girls. We know you have a choice in your brace fabrication, but this year you have one more reason to order from us.
Why should I choose a Boston Brace?
Bill Miller first designed the Boston Brace scoliosis brace in 1970, and Boston O&P has been a leader in the scoliosis industry ever since. We have five years of outcomes that demonstrate the efficacy of the Boston Brace, and we stand behind every scoliosis and spine product we make. If you haven’t ordered from us recently, or have never experienced our standard-setting products, now is the perfect time to give us a try!
How long does the event run?
The Boston O&P / Curvy Girls Scoliosis Month event starts on June 1, 2018 and ends on June 30, 2018.
Can I donate directly to Curvy Girls?
Of course! Visit the Curvy Girls website more information on how to donate to them.
