Description The Legg-Calve-Perthes Foundation is a national health organization dedicated to helping adults living with Perthes, families with children diagnosed with Perthes, and associated difficulties with the Perthes diagnosis. The Foundation’s mission is to create a centralized support community to improve the research, education, and awareness of those diagnosed with Perthes. The Foundation began in 2017, when a group of parents acknowledged that there was not a single resource dedicated to a disease that would consume most of their children’s childhood. The Board Members today are directly either impacted from a clinical or family perspective.
Founded Founded in 2017
