Mariah Aquino-Truss is a 10-year-old on a mission. Diagnosed with juvenile arthritis at the age of five, her disease causes severe pain and can even limit her ability to walk. But despite her pain, Mariah is living her dreams – singing and dancing with her performing arts group and helping the world see that kids do get arthritis, too.
Mariah is speaking up for kids just like her who need better access to care and better treatment options to help them manage their arthritis. She’s also raising funds through her Walk to Cure Arthritis team, “Mariah’s Movers,” which has raised more than $20,000 since 2011.
