LAMAR — 18-year-old Becky Greulich of Lamar has written a book about her five-year ordeal with scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine.

In “My Scoliosis Story: One Girl’s Journey from Diagnosis to Spinal Fusion Surgery,” Greulich details the trials and tribulations she faced after being diagnosed with the spinal disorder by a nurse practitioner at Dale Family Medicine in 2011.
