Members' feedback

"I'm finding it shocking and surprising the number of new people joining the community. Let me explain. I was diagnosed with AVN first in both knees back in 2005, over the next few years it was found in both hips and shoulders. I had never come across AVN before and felt like I was the only person with it, I was always having to explain to people what it was."
"Thankfully I found this website and community over a year ago and realised I was not the only one suffering with AVN, it has been such a help talking to fellow sufferers who understand what I am going through."

We are a very new charity, and we are looking for volunteers to help collate information and share, The community forum is a great way to achieve that.

Research into AVN

In the UK there seems to be very little research into Avascular Necrosis, we aim to change this by lobbying whoever we can, wherever we can to see that something is done for this disease.

Please join us.
