Defeating Juvenile Arthritis

Juvenile Arthritis

July is Juvenile Arthritis Month, and nearly 300,000 kids in the U.S. suffer from a form of it.

300,000 Kids Who Deserve a Normal Life

 

Many parents write off kids’ swollen joints, fevers, or rashes as other issues. But these are actually common signs of arthritis.

The Signs of Arthritis

Arthritis in kids can take on an autoimmune form, which can hurt their ability to fight normal diseases and grow.

Playing Instead of Pain

 

Autoimmune forms of arthritis cause kids’ immune systems to attack their own joints, causing swelling, stiffness, and permanent damage.

Exploring Instead of Aching

 

The autoimmune forms of arthritis in kids can also have serious effects if untreated, including loss of mobility, blindness, and death.

Protecting Kids' Mobility

 

Arthritis takes a toll on people of all ages, and can hurt a normal childhood. Read some kids’ stories and learn about the cause.
