As told in her own words
I found out I got JRA when I was eight. I started methotrexate in my drinks, then it stopped. Now I get injections in my belly I don't like because it hurts. Then at school I feel left out. I can't run. Sometimes my fingers get too big to write. Everybody laughs at me. Another reason is I get sick easily - I have hypermobility syndrome – and it makes JRA worse. I go to summer camp center for courageous kids. It helps remind kids with illnesses like me. You’re not alone, so do not give up. It does not matter if people make fun of you or you feel left out. Just don't give up.
