Our young friends
Every patient of the Turner Scientific and Research Orthopaedic Institute has their own medical history and, as a result, their own methods of dealing with the pain, their own story of fighting for life, the possibility of moving and controlling their bodies. Perhaps this is why these children react so keenly to all that is light and beautiful that their doctors and teachers try to provide them with. That must indeed be the case; treatment at the institute is lengthy, and being ill is no excuse for not doing their school work. They also love to have visitors, and when these visitors are performers from the Mariinsky Theatre their joy knows no bounds!
