Charlotte Thorne, who is now 18 months, will have surgery on October 9 to correct a develomental hip dysplasia she was recently diagnosed with. A Healthy Hips run/walk will be held on November 14.
Jennifer Thorne had never heard of hip dysplasia in children until her daughter was diagnosed with it. Now, Thorne is trying to raise awareness, and funds, to give to the organization that has helped her family.
Thorne, and her husband, David, are planning to hold a Healthy Hips Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, November 14 at Glover Park in Nashville. The couple are planning the walk with help from friend Marilyn Fincher.
