Ryleigh Bell started The Braced Bear . Ryleigh is an 8 year old girl who knows first hand how hard having scoliosis is. Ryleigh was diagnosed at the age of 2 with a 40 degree curve in her spine. She has had complications due to her scoliosis such as a tethered spinal cord.
Ryleigh has such a big heart and her goal is to give 500 Braced bears to kids with scoliosis!!!
We are able to make her dream a reality thanks to our amazing community and by donations from our family, friends and complete Strangers around the world..
