Perthes Disease - a potentially crippling disease of the hip - is a form of osteochondritis, which affects 5.5 per 100,000 children, mainly boys between the ages of 2 and 15 years.
We aim to help and advise families of children suffering from Perthes disease and associated conditions in all parts of the British Isles and overseas.
Fund raising events have enabled the association to buy such things as Major buggies, wheelchairs and moveable seats, which are loaned entirely free to members. We have also bought almost 100 hand propelled trikes which we loan to children in splints or plaster, to enable them to play with their friends.
