Please no drama or bashing. I only post this as a psa and to get the word out about juvenile arthritis and other forms of auto immune arthritis. This is a cause that is close to my heart because I have RA and feel that lots of times where it's all lumped together people see the milder forms and think this is what arthritis is and they see osteo arthritis that affects mainly older people and sometimes just one or two joints and think this is arthritis.

well it's not the only form of arthritis. it can affect children to young adults and just one or two joints if caused by age or stress to several or most of them if ra or juvenile arthritis. We need more awareness and funding.


again no drama or bashing this is not an endorsement of obama just a psa addressed to him to appeal for funding so no bashing please.

I didn't develop RA until i was 30 and i suffer with it now and can't seem to get it  under control. i had no clue about arthritis until i got it and no clue how bad it could be. when i watch these videos and see children suffering so it breaks my heart especially when it doesn't seem to get the attention it needs. I hope you have it under control now.
