We Are #StrongerThanJA!

Did you know that July is Juvenile Arthritis (JA) Awareness month? An estimated 300,000 children in the United States have JA, which comes with a unique physical and emotional toll for kids, teenagers and families. JA can make it especially challenging for kids to say Yes – Yes to being a kid, Yes to playing, and Yes to spending time with friends or family – or even attending school!

Click on the images below and learn more about some of our outstanding JA Warriors who work each day to stay healthy, happy, and to battle arthritis.

And keep your eye out for upcoming #StrongerThanJA Arthritis Foundation Juvenile Arthritis Conference updates, from our West Conference in Phoenix, Arizona and our East Conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where our Warriors will get to connect with their friends and others in the JA community, learn to self-advocate and more!
