Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
In early 2016 Kieran, who was 3 at the time, was complaining regularly about his knees being sore. It didn't take long for us to realize it was more than just growing pains. We went to see our family doctor who referred us to the rheumatology department at McMaster. While we waited for our appointment, Kieran's pain worsened. He would wake often throughout the night, and would wake up screaming each morning, unable walk because of the pain. Thankfully a cancellation moved our rheumatolgy appointment to March, and since then we have been working with the doctors to find a treatment that works for Kieran and helps him enjoy being an active kid again.
Today Kieran is doing much better. He still has rough days, but thanks to his incredible doctors and support from our family we are making positive steps. Our hope is that one day he will be able to live a life without pain and enjoy some of the simple things that so many of us take for granted.
Our family is taking part this walk in hopes of helping other kids who suffer from JIA by funding research that may one day find a cure.
Please join the movement and make a donation to support this important cause.
Thank you so much!
