SAK (Supporting Arthritis Kids) Program

The Arthritis Foundation, Pacific Region's SAK (Supporting Arthritis Kids) backpack program is designed to assist newly diagnosed children/teens and their parents with useful, comforting items for the child or teenager, and educational materials for parents. This program can also be a first step to connecting parents and children/teens with other local families that are on a similar journey, sharing new experiences while learning to deal with a chronic disease.
