Andrew Garcia's Fundraiser:

Cure Arthritis - Racing For A Cure

Andrew's Photo

THE STORY:

Two years ago at the age of 7, around the 4th of July, I started having pain and swelling in my knees. After many trips to the hospital, x-rays and blood work, I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. When I was first diagnosed I was very scared of what could happen to me. My doctor and parents tried their best to explain it to me and help me understand what JRA is, that it affects many kids and adults, and that I am not alone. I have discovered that many people I know have Arthritis and take many of the same medicines as I do. I don't have pain all the time, but there are times when my knees flare up just from playing or walking alot.
 
Please help me in raising money to find a cure. Thank you

Andrew

I will be running the kids run on October 12, 2013.
