|I am a Champion of YES for the Arthritis Foundation!|
|Hello everyone! I'm back asking for your support again. I was diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis 2 days after my 5th birthday. My 8th birthday is coming soon- March 26. |
My journey has been hard at times, the pain in my knees would wake me up at night multiple times and I would have a hard time walking. I got on medicine to help control my arthritis and when that stopped working I had to get an injection once a week. I hated my shots and so glad to be off them and just on my NSAID. I am grateful to be in a remission.
I am so grateful to have the support of my family and friends. I have fundraised for the Juvenile Arthritis Foundation the last 2 years; the first year I raised over $4,000 and last year over $6,000. I hope you will support me again this year and my goal is to raise $7,000 or more!
There are more than 50 million Americans and 300,000 children with arthritis live better today and to keep the Arthritis Foundationís promise of finding a cure for tomorrow. Your support provides people with arthritis life changing resources and information to manage their disease and improves access to the critical medications they need to live full, healthy lives. The impact of your donation doesnít stop today, it also helps fund cutting-edge research to identify better treatments and a cure.
