A teenager who had major surgery to straighten her spine is using her experience to help others all over the world who are facing a similar operation.
Jess McGuire from Lincoln had to have a nine-hour procedure to have metal rods inserted in her back after she developed scoliosis, a condition that means the spine curves.
Without the surgery, she would have faced life in a wheelchair, unable to do simple things like walking, bending, or playing with the family cat.
