EVENT DATE: Nov 09, 2013
Imagine a child living with...daily pain, unable to walk, crawl or play...unable to go to school everyday because they hurt and don't want to move...a baby screaming in pain just having their diaper changed...a toddler sitting through MRI's, CT scans, blood draws and x-rays to discover if their heart, lungs, liver or spleen are inflamed or failing...a teenager unable to keep up in their favorite sport, missing school and eventually becoming socially isolated. Imagine all of these children facing the risk hospitalization and even death...all of this because of one disease: Juvenile Arthritis... 300,000 children suffer with Juvenile Arthritis as you read this. It is more than just joint pain. It stops children from moving.
We are holding a fundraiser on November 9, 2013 at Pat's Bar and Grill in St. Louis, MO from 2-6pm. If you can not attend, please consider giving for this cause. All proceeds will be giving to the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA) that performs research for a cure.
Thank for you taking the time to read about this cause, and for your support.
