Let’s face it, most people think only old people get arthritis, or some may know that it can affect working age people. But kids?? Very few people know that. This can make you feel very alone.
So it’s great when you can connect with a community of people who know exactly what you and your family are going through.
We have several ways for you to connect with other families:
Follow our MSK Kids Facebook page and stay up-to-date with all the latest news and articles about juvenile arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions affecting children.
If there’s a story you’d like us to share, please contact our MSK Kids Program Manager Buffy Squires. We’d love to hear from you.
