Today we are working at the frontier between what we know and what we need to know about osteonecrosis and Perthes' Disease.  Osteonecrosis means death of bone.  This results from a wide variety of conditions, many poorly understood, which lead to major joint damage in children and young adults.

Our goal is to provide much needed funding for medical research and education of patients, physicians, and other health professionals.  To all participating physicians, we offer routine informational updates and patient educational support.  To all Perthes children, we offer hope for early diagnosis and improved care.  To all osteonecrosis patients, we offer hope for discovery of the causes of this debilitating disease and new effective forms of treatment.  Through the combined efforts of patients, industry, and caring friends, we will succeed.

We Must Succeed!!!
