Sinclaire was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis in Feb. 2017. It took about four months of doctors’ appointments, tests and a surgery (the latter being a medical misstep due to incorrect diagnosis) to finally arrive at the correct specialist’s office: a pediatric rheumatologist. Most parents of kids with juvenile arthritis simply refer to the autoimmune disease as JA, but Sinclaire’s official diagnosis is Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. Poly JIA means you have inflammation in five or more joints. This is the most common form of the disease and affects one-third of JA patients.

Now that we’ve got THAT out of the way, here’s the good part. Sinclaire’s JA is successfully controlled, for the most part, with multiple medications. Some of these treatments wouldn’t have been available to kids 20 years ago, but – thanks to medical research and advancement – Sinclaire and other JA kids can thrive, participate in school sports and enjoy most of the things healthy children do. JA is often invisible to those unaware of complications that come with the disease, which can cause frustration. During flares, JA kids can’t always keep up with their peers.

We’re excited to participate in our first-ever Jingle Bell Run this fall to help raise funds that go directly to the Arthritis Foundation, a nonprofit with a mission to continue supporting research that leads to more medical advancements in treating – and hopefully curing – arthritis. We look forward to participating in future events and doing our part to help raise funds for the Arthritis Foundation. Please consider joining our Jingle Bell Run team, or – if you are not able to make it to the run/walk on Nov. 11 – please consider making a contribution. We are so grateful for our friends’ encouragement in dealing with this new path.
