Heather Montoya has spent the last decade saving countless babies and young children, including my own four year old son Bex, from a potentially fatal and deforming form of scoliosis (Progressive Infantile Scoliosis). After her own precious daughter Olivia developed severe IS, Heather searched the world for a cure and single handedly helped to bring Dr. Min Mehta's form of serial EDF casting to the U.S. While fighting for her daughter's health through multiple treatments, Heather founded a non profit organization, "The Infantile Scoliosis Outreach Program," to make sure that even though it was too late to save her own daughter from halo traction and painful spinal surgeries, no other children would slip through the cracks. Heather continues to fiercely fight daily to make this treatment, which is the only cure for IS, to the rest of the world, particularly to 3rd world countries, and the babies children who so desperately need it. Heather Montoya is a true hero and she saved my son's life and spine.
