July is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month. That’s right, kids get arthritis. It is a common misconception that only “old” people are afflicted with arthritis. Nearly 300,000 children in America have been diagnosed with juvenile arthritis.

The form of arthritis that these kids experience is not the same as grandma’s aches and pains. These children suffer from an autoimmune form of arthritis. Their body’s immune system is attacking their joints, causing swelling, stiffness and permanent damage. This condition is extremely serious; if left untreated it can result in death.
These children deserve our support! This July tell at least one other person that it is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month.
Make a difference in these kids’ lives by making a donation towards juvenile arthritis research today!
