Punching Perthes In The Face….Tiger Style!


Ok, so no one in our family had ever heard the word Legg-Calve-Perthes (Perthes) before May 18th. No one. Not my 60…something mom (mom, you don’t seem a day over 30 in my mind!), not several friends who work in the medical profession, certainly not me, and definitely not Elijah. One of our greatest initiatives is to bring awareness to this disease, so that if it is caught early enough and the child is young enough that he/she will not have to face such invasive and aggressive surgeries as Elijah. We desire to get the word out as loud as possible!

Elijah designed the shirt, of course, with the color he loves, sweats, and bleeds for…….Tiger orange. The #1(on the back) is what he has the honor of wearing when playing QB for the greatest team of boys on the planet…..the upcoming 5th grade LYF football team, which he’ll obviously be sidelined from this year. If you’d like to help us get the word out about this disease and support Elijah please let us know! If you’re local….we’ll deliver! Shirts are $10.

Help Elijah punch Perthes in the face and tackle it to the ground! #tackleperthes

Tiff 🙂
