EOFY Healthy Hips Appeal
With your tax deductible gift to Healthy Hips Australia this EOFY, you could:
Help families overwhelmed by a diagnosis of hip dysplasia.
Up to 1 in 50 babies in Australia are treated for hip dysplasia every year. Many families know no one else impacted by the condition, and feel isolated and alone. Not wanting to complain about a non life-threatening condition, they struggle to manage with the day-to-day challenges posed during treatment for the condition.
Hip dysplasia isn't life threatening, but it can be life changing. Healthy Hips Australia needs your help to deliver face-to-face support for families impacted by hip dysplasia. Our goal is to have Support Co-ordinators available ain each state and territory in Australia. You donation can help make this happen.
Help eliminate late diagnosis.
Only 51% of almost 650 families, surveyed in February this year, had heard of hip dysplasia before their child was diagnosed. Awareness for the condition is poor outside of orthopaedic community.
Late diagnosed hip dysplasia has trebled in Australia in recent years, with Australian orthopaedic surgeons calling this a public health issue. Their proposed solution, is more awareness for the condition, and education about the importance of knowing the risk factors.
Your support could help give ALL parents and parents-to-be the knowledge they need to optimise hip health for their children. This will make a huge difference to individual families - and the future impact hip dysplasia has on our children.
Help Healthy Hips Australia.
We are Australia's first hip dysplasia charity dedicated to improving awareness, support and early diagnosis. Our existence is reliant on community support. Please support us.
