Sal Pugliese Jr. Perthes Disease Fund
Sal's parents; (Sal Sr. and Lisa), were determined to find him the best care despite the limitations of their health insurance. After countless research and medical opinions, on November 5th Sal Jr. underwent surgery at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore MD, with Dr. Shawn Standard, an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in an advanced surgical procedure (hip distraction) for Perthes. Unfortunately, finding the best doctor meant Sal and Lisa are now faced with all medical expenses, including a $75,000-dollar surgical bill and thousands more in ongoing hospitalization, physical therapy, and residence fees while in Baltimore, MD. If you're already familiar with Sal and Lisa, you know they are always the first to help, and the last to ever complain or ask for assistance.
Sal Jr is currently undergoing the 1st phase of his recovery with hopes to run and play outdoors again within the next 1-2 yrs. Please help support these two loving parents and their extraordinary child.
Thank you very much for any donation, contribution, and prayers :)
