Wonderful News on The Research Front!


Dear Members and friends, Firstly, I would like to say a big thank you all for your continued support – without you there would be no Perthes Association and no support network, for the many families whose lives are affected by Perthes disease. It has been a tough year financially, with the number of new cases referred to us still growing and the number of new charities springing up, making the competition for funding even harder for a charity like ours.

Tilly’s Story

This is Tilly's Story as told to members of the Association at the last Get-together held at Guildford.Hello my name is Tilly Winson, I’m a proud Perthes child ! I would like to tell you about my journey through Perthes disease. I am currently twelve and half years old and am at the final stages of my journey with bi-lateral Perthes disease which we had never heard of before, so mum found Perthes Association on the Internet which has been very useful.
