About Us

Ryleigh's WHY

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..
