Jessica was diagnosed with scoliosis 16 months ago when she was having a dress fitted and the tailor spotted her crooked shoulders.
Her parents Kevin, 42, and Ange, 44, took her to the doctors and she was referred for an operation but had to wait 16 months before having surgery.
She was due to have the op just before Christmas but because of a backlog of patients she was told she would have to wait four more painful months.
During that time her spine continued to twist out of shape and she had to prop herself up on five pillows in order to get a good night's sleep.
Oh yeah- and look how wonderful our government-run health care system is too. She only had to suffer needlessly and have her life endangered for a few months longer than necessary.
