From: Dominican Republic
As a 13-year-old girl, Yulenny feared that her condition would turn her into someone that people would tease. This was yet another case of thoracic-lumbar scoliosis.
Yulenny is very grateful for everything the Butterfly Foundation has done for her. "I feel very happy, and am grateful to the surgeons from New York and Dr. Salvador B. Gautier Hospital. I congratulate you for your work ... I love you Geraldine for your support and the people of Butterfly Foundation for their work. May God bless you all."
Since she was only 13 years old, Yulenny had many dreams for her future. Thanks to the Butterfly Foundation and everyone involved, her possibilities for a better future have opened. Her surgery has helped her feel more confident and the constant pain that was a part of her everyday life has disappeared.
