Is there anyone out there that has a child with JRA?

She was diagnosed when she was 1 1/2 and we have been through the ringer with it. Just needing someone to share and help through this.

  • My young adult daughter got JRA when she was 12.  Do you see a pediatric rheumatologist?   We have an excellent one now that really tries to help.   We have also gone to a few conferences and met other families - wonderful experiences!   I'd also check out the resources at the Juvenile Arthritis Alliance http://www.arthritis.org/ja-resources.php and join this support group http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/jra-list/  You'll meet tons of other helpful moms in the group!
