About the solution
Sarah, a family friend, who does the set design for their theatre group, turned Maddie’s back brace into a steampunk armor.
"My daughter didn't like the brace she had to wear after surgery, so a friend helped her steampunk it. Best part, now folks are intrigued, and come up and ask why she has to wear it rather than just staring”, Lisa C., Maddie’s mother, explained.
This new design helped Maddie gain some confidence.
“Sarah, the design mastermind, also does set design for our theater group, and helped with sets for a steampunk version of 'A Christmas Carol. Best part, now folks are intrigued, and come up and ask why she has to wear it rather than just staring”, Lisa described.
