With big plans to be a football star, Charlie won’t let juvenile idiopathic arthritis stop him. He’s pushing aside the pain of monthly injections and embracing an active childhood.
Charlie is an avid sports fan. Last year alone, he played T-ball, soccer, karate, basketball and flag football. He recently said that he wants to play football at Clemson University because they won the national championship. Charlie’s parents don’t plan on letting JIA keep him from realizing his dreams, whatever they turn out to be. The Field family is excited that Charlie was asked to be this year’s Youth Honoree for the Houston Walk to Cure Arthritis and are humbled to have the opportunity to help bring awareness to juvenile arthritis.
