We created the above #PerthesAwareness post for Facebook in recognition of Rare Disease Day, a while back. The poster was shared over 2,000 times, in over 20 different countries! We're glad to have brought more attention to this rare disease of Legg-Calve-Perthes, even for just a little while. We plan to do even more in 2018-2019, for Rare Disease Day (February 28) and beyond. #ShareIfYouCare
