Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Jack, now 8, was diagnosed with Perthes Disease when he was 7 years old. Jack was very active, playing many sports, especially rugby for Sai Kung Stingrays and riding his bikes. He has cycled his HOY bike in several countries in Asia and raced in Duathlons and BMX-ed in Hong Kong. He had a femoral osteotomy in Nov 2016 and although not in any pain now, he cannot play any sports for now. The average healing time is between 2- 5 years.

Jack picked up his first hand cycle this summer, so we can cycle again as a family. We aim to raise money and awareness for The Perthes Association to help with research and care for other Perthes sufferers.
