Mikayla, Founder Of HIP Buddies...

Hello my name is Mikayla and I'm 15 years and from Melbourne, Australia.

I love makeup, singing and photography.

I have Developmental Hip Dysplasia. I've had 5 hip and leg surgeries since the age of 10 and developed Central Sensitisation because of the surgeries !

The HIP Buddies project is aimed at selling writbands, supplied by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute. With the money raised we will buy soft toys that will be handed out to children who have had orthopedic surgery in the Royal Children's Hospital. I hope that they will provide some comfort and lots of cuddles to kids in the hospital.

This project relies on the support and donations of everyday people so, if you can help, please contact us.
