Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month

300,000 children in America have arthritis, and we need your help spreading the word.

July is #JuvenileArthritis Awareness Month.

Children get arthritis. It is a misconception that only “older” people have arthritis.

 

SIGNS OF JUVENILE ARTHRITIS

  • Joint pain
  • Swelling
  • Fever
  • Stiffness
  • Rash
  • Fatigue (tiredness)
  • Loss of appetite
  • Inflammation of the eye
  • Difficulty with daily living activities such as walking, dressing, and playing

A child’s immune system is not formed until 18. This “autoimmune” form of arthritis is especially aggressive in children.

It compromises their ability to fight diseases.
