Sister with severe scoliosis

Hi guys I just joined dreamstime, I'm hoping it will be a good choice as I am really interested in taking photos. In these down times, my little sister has recently been diagnosed with a severe and rare case of scoliosis. The doctor had told us that cases would be classified as severe once the... I don't how to say it, bending of her bag was 45 degrees. They had later informed us that my sisters spinal chord was at 55 degrees, very severe. She will be missing months of school due to her surgery that she will have sometime between thanksgiving and christmas. We were informed that the pain level would be a 9 out of a 10 being the most painful scale. She is 13 years old and just made the cheer team which is her passion as much as photography is mine. Because of the seriousness, our doctor is letting her participate in any activity possible before the surgery as she will not be able to move the same way for a long time. To keep spirits up I included a photo that a dreamstime user has taken that illustrates caring hands and I am hoping this post will spark positive comments so i can show her how much people care.

Wish she will get better, too. I believe that people like her can really do this and have very good results, as they are more motivated. Of course that not only people in sickness but I think that they might be a little bit more talented ;;) Good luck.
