We are helping a little girl “Falak Naz” since she was 5 years old. She has a spinal deformity called: “thoracic kyphoscoliosis”
Give the Needy Foundation not only supports widows and orphans, but also helps girls with challenging medical needs. One example is helping a little girl “Falak Naz” since she was 5 years old. She has a spinal deformity called: “thoracic kyphoscoliosis”.
Unfortunately Falak doesn’t have the pleasure to do most of the things a normal child would do because of her illness. Her spine has an abnormal curve called Kyphoscoliosis. (Please click here for detail information from WIKIPEDIA >)
The three general causes are present at birth, poor muscle control or muscle weakness and the third one is unknown. In Falak’s case it was present at birth; but was not diagnosed until she was 3 years old when the curve became obvious. It is often not noticed in the earlier stages. According to the doctors if one shoulder appears to be higher than the other then there maybe chances of scoliosis. Other symptoms are lower back pain, fatigue, shoulders. The hips are uneven and spine curves abnormally to the side.
She is presently on medication and her spinal x-rays are taken periodically to check her condition. But unfortunately the size and the location of her spinal curve is getting worse as she is growing older.
Please help us help Falak fight her illness with Give the Needy Foundation; so that she has a healthy future by supporting her with her medical needs.

I hope her story will inspire you to help her, as there are several operations she has to under go, until she is better. Please email us for any inquiry that you may have to help support her.
