Join our team to support Bevin and other kids living with JA!!!!


In November 2010, when Bevin was 21 months old, she was taken to see her pediatrician due to a prolonged limp. After an exam, x-ray and lab work, her pediatrician saw that her Sedimentation Rate was almost double normal range, her Platelets were high and she tested ANA positive; he diagnosed her with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA). She was started on a twice daily oral medication to help with inflammation and referred to a Pediatric Rheumatologist. After seeing the Rheumatologist he found that both hips, both knees and one ankle were affected by the JRA and started her on a weekly injection to help suppress her overactive immune system. Bevin is now almost 5 years old and has been on the medications since January of 2011 (with a 6 month break when she went into remission), she has to see the Rheumatologist every 2-3 months, get labs every 6-12 weeks and because she is ANA positive she has to see an eye doctor every 3-4 months to make sure that she doesn’t develop Uveitis (inflammation of the eye).

Even though she has JRA, Bevin is an extremely active little girl who loves to jump rather than walk, can swing higher than some kids twice her age, her favorite “lovey” is a stuffed rat named Bubba and her favorite color is purple.

Nearly 53 million Americans (1 in 5) adults, including 300,000 children (1 in 250) have been diagnosed with arthritis. More children in the US are living with JA then cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, juvenile diabetes and cystic fibrosis…COMBINED!!!

Donations go to fund arthritis research, education and community programs. Because of the Arthritis walk and other fundraising events like it, we were able to attend the Juvenile Arthritis conference in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Functions like the JA conference help families like ours meet other people who are going thru what we are and help us build a support network.

Please join us! We need you there!
