5 thoughts on “A little girl of 4 suffers from JRA, her story

  1. Hi Michelle,
    Was doing a little research and came across your site. I work with CreakyJoints, nonprofit online community dedicated to helping people with arthritis live their lives to the fullest. We are trying to get the word out about a free RA video available on our site for viewing or downloading, called “Another Hope: RA Infusion Therapy.” The video contains introductory, non-brand specific information about infusion therapy, how it works, and its benefits, and features the story of Elizabeth, a young woman who has been living with RA since childhood, who recently completed the New York City triathlon. You can see it at http://www.creakyjoints.org. Please take a minute to check out the site and the video – if you like it, would you consider posting some brief info about it? We’d like to let as many people know about it as possible.

    Thanks, and feel free to email with any questions!

  2. Thanks for sharing this-i can’t imagine having to go through all of this as a child-it is bad enough at 29! I just found your site and am really happy to be finding an online community. I was diagnosed with RA last october and it has taken some digging to find these blogs!
    Looking forward to reading more!

  3. Hey Connie,
    I’m sorry to hear about your cousin. JRA is awful, starting out so young with these problems really does make the issues in mid-life much more severe. It’s a crime.
    Thanks for the prayers for Hanna and her family, I’m sure they would appreciate it.
    How are you doing? I’m going to hop over to your blog and see 🙂
    Be well

  4. Thanks for sharing this. JRA is a terrible disease. Since autoimmune diseases run in my family, my cousin has JRA. Actually she has Psoriatic Arthritis which is RA and Psoriasis. She has it from the age of about 9. She’s now an adult and has so many health problems, it’s awful.

    It seems that RA starts in the ankles in our family. We have about 5 of us cousins with it (we’re a large family).

    I’ll be praying for Hanna and her parents.

Talk to me! :)
