Hopefully, this will help bring about changes for earlier detection, and could improve the future for so many lives. However, what becomes of the forgotten Hippies, the Hippies who struggle to have their voices heard, who have grown up with this relatively unknown condition. Living each day with deteriorating mobility, the agonising gnawing pain and the loneliness it brings stealing their freedom.
LWHD exists to help those Hippies get the answers they so desperately need, the advocacy and voice when they need one, and the support that gives them the strength to claim their lives back.
2018 is the year DDH will be put on the map. These courageous Hippies have come together to be that voice, to show what it has physically taken for them to undertake a feat most people would take for granted. To climb 9 miles, 3560 feet, with 10 prosthetic hips, 13 titanium pins and 3 metal plates between them!
Money raised during our event will continue to develop this awareness campaign, to fund literature that will educate and also continue to support our adult hippies in their day to day lives. 25% of all that is raised through this event will be donated to DDH_UK.
