The Legg-Calve-Perthes Foundation is a national education and health organization dedicated to helping adults living with the effects of 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.
Each of GlobalGiving’s nonprofit partners is required to send quarterly donor reports detailing the impact of their work.
