It's time to #CutTheBull

One-in-four students in the U.S., and one-in-three teens in Canada, report being bullied. Those numbers can be two to three times higher for kids with visible scars or disabilities, according to the National Center for Education.

Studies also show that most bullying is never reported and can lead to depression, anxiety, poor academic performance, and even suicide.

Many Shriners Hospitals for Children patients have visible scars or disabilities, making bullying an unfortunately common problem among the children and teens we see. That is why we have joined the fight to stop bullying with our #CutTheBull campaign.

Katherine's road to recovery and determination to give back

In September of 2019, Katherine was enjoying a late summer afternoon with friends. She had just attended practice after school and then was going to dinner. That normalcy was shattered when Katherine and three of her peers were involved in a devastating car accident. Katherine found herself unconscious on the passenger side, hidden by the deployed airbag. As she regained consciousness, Katherine realized that the car was on fire. "I had to basically will myself out of the car, undo my seatbelt and kick the door open," Katherine recalled. At that point, someone who came upon the scene grabbed Katherine off the ground and moved her away from the burning vehicle.

Thalia: Free to be me! From debilitating scoliosis to no limitations

Living in Haiti, Thalia wore a brace to address her scoliosis curve but it wasn't enough. By the time she was 13 years old, she had to stop taking dance class and would become exhausted just playing with her friends.

"It was becoming harder and harder for me to breathe, and it was even difficult for me to sleep," said Thalia. "I felt like I was losing my freedom."
