July is not just about BBQ's; the Arthritis National Research Foundation honors Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month

July signifies the height of summer, but the Arthritis National Research Foundation wants to remind everyone that it also represents Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month. While most Americans will be focused on barbeques, picnics, the beach and the sun for the 4th of July, some 300,000 children will continue their battle with a life altering disease, juvenile arthritis.

This autoimmune disease is particularly dangerous in children because their immune systems are not yet mature. The Arthritis National Research Foundation is working to make a difference with cutting-edge arthritis research.

Most people think of old people having arthritis. An estimated 50 million people in the U.S. alone suffer from some form of arthritis, making it the leading cause of disability and missed time from work. In the case of young sufferers, it means missed time from school, play and childhood pleasures that other children take for granted. It means time in the hospital for intravenous treatments. The juvenile forms of arthritis can seriously affect the eyes (a condition called uveitis) and other organ systems. Sadly, juvenile arthritis (JA) does not always stop at age 18-21. Many suffer the symptoms of JA throughout adulthood.
