I live with arthritis as a adult so it must be horrible for a child to deal with that.

Arthritis is an autoimmune disease listed as a side effects on the insert of all childhood vaccines! You would be better doing a class action against the pharmaceutical companies. All the vaccine injured hpv victims in Ireland are going down the same road!

I’m here for other children.
I’m here because I care.
I’m here because children everywhere are suffering and because forty thousand people die each day from hunger.
I’m here because those people are mostly children.
We have got to understand that the poor are all around us and we are ignoring them.
We have got to understand that these deaths are preventable.
We have got to understand that people in third world countries think and care and smile and cry just like us.
We have got to understand that they dream our dreams and we dream theirs.
We have got to understand that they are us. We are them.
My dream is to stop hunger by the year 2000.
My dream is to give the poor a chance.
My dream is to save the 40,000 people who die each day.
My dream can and will come true if we all look into the future and see the light that shines there.
If we ignore hunger, that light will go out.
If we all help and work together, it will grow and burn free with the potential of tomorrow.”

My son has JIA. First became ill on his 2nd birthday and was formally diagnosed 5 months later. Early intervention is key to preventing long term and permanent issues!
Although it was only 5 months for us we attended over a dozen gp, 2 dozen A&E and half a dozen urgent care appointments before being taken seriously. This also affected mine and my wife’s work.

No child should have to suffer more.

Was tough being diagnosed as an adult but with good support can lead a full life. So much tougher being diagnosed as a child with the changes and limitations they dace as they're growing up. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial to enable these children to live the best lives they can.
