Kids get arthritis, too! And we at the Arthritis Foundation are dedicated to being their champions. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 300,000 children in the U.S. have been diagnosed with juvenile arthritis (JA) and other childhood rheumatic conditions. It’s likely that many more kids are affected by rheumatic diseases and don’t even know it.
We are boldly leading the fight for families living with this mysterious disease. To help them cope, we now offer a unique package of support for young patients and their families.
