Welcome to Arizona
There are more than 50 million Americans with Arthritis - 1,194,000 of them live in Arizona. The Arthritis Foundation is the Champion of Yes. We are focused on finding a cure and championing the fight against arthritis through vital information, advocacy, science and community. Our goal is to chart a winning course, guiding families in developing personalized plans for saying yes – day after day.
Children ages 6 – 16 affected by Juvenile Arthritis or other childhood rheumatic diseases and their immediate family members welcome.
This great experience is designed specifically for the child with JA, their parents, caregivers, and siblings. The greatest benefit of the event is getting to meet others who are dealing with similar issues, who share some of the same feelings, experiences, and concerns. It’s a place to exchange ideas, give and receive encouragement, make new friends and know you’re not alone.
