The month of July is Juvenile Arthritis Month. Having Arthritis is usually associated with people in advanced age. Unfortunately, the disease can affect anyone at any age and the cause remains unknown. Autoimmune and inflammatory conditions or rheumatic diseases that develop in children are collectively called Juvenile Arthritis. In this case, the child’s immune system is attacking joints that causes swelling stiffness and long-term damages. In some cases, it can cause total loss of mobility, blindness and even death.
 
In the United States, nearly 300,000 children are affected by this disease. As such, organizations like The National Arthritis Foundation encourages everyone to fund initiatives that will find the cure to Arthritis, particularly Juvenile Arthritis and save thousands of children diagnosed with the disease.
 
If you are willing and able to help by providing a donation, you may do so at curearthritis.org. Other ways to support the cause is by showing your support, and wearing awareness gear such as the blue cure arthritis bracelet, limited edition shirt as well as using social media to help spread awareness about the disease and the opportunities available to make a difference in the lives of so many children.
