Welcome to JUNE and that can only mean one thing!
Scoliosis awareness month is here and WE CAN’T KEEP CALM!!!
Just in case you found yourself here by a random click and wondering what is Scoliosis? Well we are pleased to share with you!
Scoliosis is an abnormal side to side curvature of the spine often diagnosed in childhood. In most cases the cause of Scoliosis is unknown and one of the effective ways to manage it is through early detection.
And if you thought so what is B.A.C.S doing about this?
1. We are here to raise Scoliosis awareness in Nigeria and Africa at large.
2. To build a community of Love and Strength for ScoliWarriors

“WE ALL HAVE THE POWER TO CHANGE A CHILD’S WORLD. THE CHANGE I’M REFERRING TO DOESN’T INVOLVE MOUNTAINS OF TIME OR EVEN A LARGE CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTION. IT’S A FAIRLY SIMPLE STEP THAT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO CHANGE A LIFE. IT COULD CHANGE ONE’S SELF IMAGE, INTERACTIONS WITH OTHERS, AS WELL AS IMPROVE THEIR HAPPINESS AND QUALITY OF LIFE. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BE OBSERVANT”

Kudos to this group, because early detection helps a lot as the acquired form of scoliosis can easily be corrected not only by professional intervention but also by life style.
Yess!! EARLY DETECTION is very KEY and that’s our message here at BACS! Thank you so much, Anike! Love!
