Please Help Dudley

Won't you please give to help Dudley get the hip surgery he so desperately needs. Dudley’s hips were evaluated by a specialist in 2009 and was diagnosed with Severe Hip Dysplasia.  The X-ray findings were "sublocation osteroarthitis/degenerative joint disease and shallow acetabula" all that to say his hips were a mess! Read More about Dudley here.

He has grown up taking the chronic pain for granted and has learned to live with it

Click here to donate  and in the Customer Notes put Dudley.
