The Braced Bear -
Ryleigh is an 8 year-old girl born with scoliosis. Her condition has been getting more severe as time goes on. She is a trooper that fights thru the pain while still doing kid stuff like dance, gymnastics, monkey bars and being a great kid.
Ryleigh started The Braced Bear when she was 7 years old to help other kids with scoliosis. She gives each kid a bear with a back brace just like they have to wear to help with their spinal curvature.
Ryleigh's brace experience was not enjoyable as it is uncomfortable, not fashionable, and just overall awkward to have on all the time and she knows a bear with a brace will help any kid go thru the experience a little easier.
Every $10 contribution buys a bear Ryleigh can fit with a brace to help ease another kid's burdens. An extra $40 pays for the brace.
Her goal is to help 500 kids in 2019. Let's help her make that happen!
2019 GOAL: 500 Braced Bears
