Help Jaden fight Perthes

Jaden  is 7 years old, he has been a very healthy active baby into child. On march 21st he was diagnosed with legg calve perthes disease. this disease causes the head of his femor to flatten which then causes his hip to collapse. He will be having surgery April 17, 2018 as his right hip is starting to collapse. He will have to have casts on both his legs with a metal rod on between for 4-6 weeks, after the casts come off then he still has another 4 weeks in a wheelchair with a possible brace. then however long on cruches until he teaches himself how to walk again and gains the strength. This will include a lot of physical therapy once he is on crutches. This disease will be with him his whole life. There is a possibility of him getting it down the road in his left hip and having to go through the whole process of surgery again. He is also septical to early hip replacement (could be as early as 15-40) and arthritis in his hips. Jaden will be home tutored for the rest of the school year and needs 24/7 care. Any donations would be used to help with all the medical costs that include surgery, wheelchair, doctors visits, physical therapy and helping to do nessecary repairs at home so that his wheelchair can fit through doorways and some rooms that are too narrow. Any little bit will help. We have a long road ahead of us. Thank you so much. This is an example of the cast that he will be in.29029290_15235579200_r.jpeg29029290_15235580540_r.jpeg
