Arthritis Foundation 2013 Annual Report
12
The needs of families living with juvenile arthritis (JA) are unique and urgent. In the United States, 300,000
children have JA. Multiply that by their parents, siblings, extended family and close friends, and the number of
people affected is astronomical. For almost seven decades, the Arthritis Foundation has upheld our unwavering
promise to assist them and their caregivers.
Since the site’s launch in July 2013 through the end of
June 2014,
99,145 PEOPLE used KidsGetArthritisToo.org
(or KGAT.org) to get information, download resources, sign
up for events and connect with others.
