Help Support Someone Newly Diagnosed with Paget's
Our Support Gift Bags are designed to bring comfort to those who are newly diagnosed with Paget’s Disease of Bone. Individuals may be distressed by their diagnosis and worried about the future. Whilst we can provide information, answer questions, we wanted to do something extra. Our Paget’s Support Gift Bag provides extra support when it is needed most and brighten the day of those suffering emotionally and/or physically. It is a little bag of kindness during a difficult time. Will you help us provide them?

To receive a free Support Gift Bag, individuals must be recently diagnosed with Paget’s disease, live in the UK and must not have received one from the Paget's Association before.
