Local lad Ary Rahman suffers from an abnormal twisting and sideways curvature of the spine condition, known as scoliosis, spending much of his time in a wheelchair receiving treatments from spinal surgeons and wearing a spinal support suit, which he regularly outgrows and has to be replaced.
Last year we donated £500 towards the costs of specialist treatment unavailable in the UK. This Spring Ary was in need of a second 6 week visit to the Adeli Medical Centre in Slovakia again, and we were delighted to be able to help again.
Ary’s mother reported “Ary’s trip went really well. He’s sitting a lot straighter and has visibly gained a lot of strength in his core muscles. He’s even managed some independent steps which is amazing but he’s using his upper body to gain momentum so it isn’t great for his scoliosis. I think his next target is to try and use his legs more when trying to take independent steps”
