Wine and Silent Auction
Benefiting the Legg-Calve-Perthes Foundation
Save the date on November 24 4-9pm at Barrel Oak Winery in Delaplane, VA
Friends and family join together for a night out! All funds raised at the event benefit the Family Assistance Fund which will award grants to eligible families in 2019.
Nearly half of all families battling a rare disease have to borrow money from friends and family. The financial toll of a chronic disease is significant: treatment and equipment costs, additional therapies and interventions, time away from work, travel to specialists. The emotional toll can be even greater when experiencing loss of independence and chronic pain. A family shouldn’t have to struggle to afford care in the midst of the Perthes battle.
The Family Assistance Fund helps eligible families with wheelchairs, adaptive clothing and equipment, bathroom modifications, ramps, and travel expenses. The application process will be detailed and opened in 2019 at Perthes.org/fa-fund
