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
- 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.
Together we can #CureArthritis!
