Leila Bennadi from West London is a successful elite gymnast with Heathrow Gymnastics Club.
Sadly, Leila has recently been diagnosed with severe Scoliosis, which if not treated, will not only end her career as a gymnast , but would be life changing. Worryingly, given the rate of progression of the curve in her spine, if not treated immediately she will be outside the parameters for treatment.
She needs a new treatment called Vertebral Body Tethering (VBT) which is not available in the U.K.
