Shay; my young life with arthritis
Arthritis Care makes a huge difference to children, like Shay, who are living with the daily challenges of arthritis. We run a range of workshops and activity weekends where first timers are welcomed and guided by a leader and youngsters of the same age who all have arthritis themselves. Children are coaxed out of their solitude and loneliness. Above all, being with others who are living full lives, despite their arthritis, inspires these young first timers to see a better future. Please help children with arthritis to deal with pain, make friends and have fun. With your help, they’ll soon be doing things they only ever dreamed of and will face a future full of confidence and friendship. Visit arthritiscare.org.uk for more information.

A Child with Juvenile Arthritis ...Savannah's story... hopeforsavannah.blogspot.com
This is a video featuring Savannah, the junior honoree for the Montgomery, AL 2012 Jingle Bell Run benefiting the Arthritis Foundation. Savannah was diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (also known as Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis) at the age of eight years old. It started in her fingers and is now throughout most of her body. As a result of great doctors, powerful medicines, and lots of prayer, she is doing much better these days. However, she still endures pain daily. We need a cure for the 50 million Americans who suffer with some form of arthritis, as well as for the 300,000 children who also suffer with this disease.

Diagnosing childhood arthritis - Newcastle University
International Research Impact: http://bit.ly/impact-yt Doctors all over the world are now using a simple clinical skill to help recognise the most common form of childhood arthritis, thanks to research by paediatric rheumatologists at Newcastle University. Professor Helen Foster explains how she set about improving the teaching of skills to identify juvenile idiopathic arthritis after research highlighted that many doctors were unable to diagnose the condition which can leave patients deformed, blind and with a poor quality of life if not treated promptly. She is filmed at the Great North Children’s Hospital, which is part of Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and is where she puts into practice her knowledge of childhood arthritis by treating many children and young people in her role as a consultant paediatric rheumatologist.

Children with Arthritis - Still Waiting in Pain
565, that is the number of children waiting to see a Consultant Paediatric Rheumatologist for treatment for JIA. The latest figures show that the waiting list crisis has deepened, with the number of children waiting in pain now far higher than the end of April this year - with a 46% increase. This is a national crisis, so enough is enough. As part of National Arthritis Week, we are calling for the urgent appointment of a third Consultant Paediatric Rheumatologist to be appointed at Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin to help ease the huge burden on overstretched services. Children on waiting lists are not just waiting in pain; they are also at risk of permanent, irreversible joint damage that can impact on their ability to live a normal life. So, this National Arthritis Week (10th-16th October) we are asking the public to help us put an end to Waiting In Pain.

Arthritis Ireland: Children Waiting In Pain, National Arthritis Week Campaign, URGENT Appointment.
Arthritis Ireland: Children Waiting In Pain Campaign - URGENT Appointment of a third Consultant Paediatric Rheumatologist. National Arthritis Week 2016 Children with arthritis are fed up waiting in pain. 565 is the number of children waiting to see a consultant paediatric rheumatologist for the treatment of childhood arthritis, Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). The latest figures show that the waiting list crisis has intensified, with the number of children waiting in pain for over a year and a half increasing by an exponential 400% since January 2016. More than 1,200 children are living with arthritis in Ireland today, making it as common as childhood diabetes. However, the paediatric rheumatology service at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin (OLCHC) is inadequately staffed to deal with the volume of children waiting to be seen. There are just two consultant paediatric rheumatologists appointed for the entire country to cater for children who live with constant pain in their joints and many other parts of their bodies. There is no cure for arthritis but with the correct standards of care children can have as normal and as active a life as possible. This is a national crisis, so enough is enough. As part of National Arthritis Week, Arthritis Ireland are calling for the urgent appointment of a third consultant paediatric rheumatologist to be appointed at OLCHC to help ease the huge burden on the already overstretched services. Children on waiting lists are not just waiting in pain; they are also at risk of permanent, irreversible joint damage that impacts on their ability to live a normal a life as possible.

SJIA: It's Not Just "Arthritis" | Cincinnati Children's
http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/rheumatology Some people dismiss “Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis” as “just arthritis.” But for kids who have SJIA, there’s more to it than aches and pains. Emma Brown, Colorado patient’s mom: “My daughter, Reagan, was diagnosed when she was 9 months old, perfectly healthy baby, you know joyful, happy, no problems. Got sick with the stomach flu and we landed in the hospital in Denver for about two weeks, going through the gamut of everything, trying to figure out what it was, and nobody knew anything. We finally got another opinion from a rheumatologist, did an MRI and confirmed that it was Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. Um, we went home thinking, that, ‘Oh, thank God, it’s not cancer, and you know, take some ibuprofen, and maybe some steroids and we’re good. Um, and little did we know that that was a tiny fraction of this huge story that we were about to go on.” What can start as daily rashes and fevers can be symptoms of SJIA. It is the rarest form of childhood arthritis. It is hard to diagnose. It can affect the whole body and make not just joints but internal organs swell. It can even lead to kidney failure. There is no cure. Heather and Mark Klopping, Texas patient’s parents: “It’s mysterious. It’s idiopathic, which means they don’t know what causes it, so we feel that we need to stay on top of it.” Cincinnati Children’s and the Systemic JIA Foundation are working with parents to hold family education days and make social media connections to raise awareness and provide support. Daniel Lovell, MD, MPH, Associate Director, Division of Rheumatology: “The unfortunate fact is, in the United States, there’s only about 250 doctors who have the specialized training to take care of children with systemic JIA and other related diseases.” Emma Brown: “And that’s what’s terrifying is that there’s not enough knowledge about this. There’s not enough awareness about what our kids to through. They hear the word ‘arthritis’ and well, you’re never going to die from that. But that’s the reality of our kids’ lives is that they catch a virus from something it’s very real.” Voiceover: Parents of kids with SJIA are pushing for more research and understanding. Tammy Woodwick, Minnesota patient’s mom: “I think the disease is so terribly misunderstood, even amongst our immediate family, how sick he’s been for two years. I don’t think people understand the danger he’s been in. So my hope is that we can put a better identification on it and so people don’t think it’s just arthritis, and, of course, a cure.” Dr. Lovell: “The important take-home message is: Effective treatments are available.” The key for parents of kids with SJIA, he says, is to get to a rheumatology specialist to see what’s most effective for your child.

Meet Haley, a spunky 11 year old patient who was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Phoenix Children's is the home to the only two board-certified pediatric rheumatologists in Arizona. Treatment from a pediatric-trained rheumatologist gives kids the best chance because rheumatic diseases behave differently in a child's body than an adult's. And our staff only work with children, in a kid-friendly, medical home. Previously, Haley's doctors were just trying to manage her pain. Since coming to see pediatric rheumatologist, Dr. Michael Shishov, her mom looks forward to Haley's next 80 years of life, and the fact that her quality of life is will be better.

America’s Pediatric Arthritis Specialist Shortage: What it Means for Kids, Cost and Care
More than 63 million Americans are living with doctor diagnosed arthritis, autoimmune diseases such as lupus, or inflammatory rheumatic diseases such as gout and psoriatic arthritis. This includes more than 300,000 children. Access to specialists is key to help rheumatic disease patients—both young and old—manage pain, prevent joint damage and avoid permanent disability. Unfortunately, the number of doctors available to treat this growing patient base is shrinking. Watch the American College of Rheumatology, the Arthritis Foundation and the National Psoriasis Foundation—in conjunction with the Congressional Arthritis Caucus—join together for a briefing on access challenges and policy solutions.

Defining Arthritis
Arthritis is defined as painful inflammation and stiffness of the joints. Also found in children, arthritis is a disease that scares many parents. Thinking that your child may never walk again is a chilling thought, though it doesn’t have to be the case. My name is Allie Ray and I am an 18-year-old college student living with Juvenile Arthritis. I was diagnosed when I was 5 and I have never reached remission. I was accepted into college as well as on the deans list my first year over 200 miles away from home, I love to dance, golf is one of my hobbies, I play hockey, and I am in multiple clubs on campus. I have gone through this fearless journey without any regrets. I have faced numerous doctors telling me what I will NOT be able to do because of my disease. I would just like to prove you all wrong. Not only did I walk, I ran. Not only did I stand, I jumped. Not only did I prove you wrong, I defined what arthritis means to me. There is nothing WRONG with me or my fellow arthritics. There is so much RIGHT with me that “limitation” is just another way to break from the mold that we are put in upon our diagnoses. Don’t let arthritis define what you can and cannot do. Be a courageous warrior and define arthritis. Prove that you lived the life that was once taken away from you due to your diagnoses.
