Unable to stand or walk, she suffered immense physical pain, along with the mental anguish of being unable to play with her friends and family. After two failed operations, Ravneet's Standing Straight surgery has brought new hope to her family. Today she is growing straight and tall, enjoying the life every child her age deserves.
