Mya's Fundraising Page
My name is Mya and when I was just 2 years old I was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis. I am now 10 years old and I still struggle everyday with this chronic condition. I have to go to the Hospital every 6 weeks for infusions and appointments, I have to take daily medications and be careful for infections. Also, because of my Arthritis I have vision problems and cataracts. But, with the help of my doctors and places like The Arthritis Society my chronic condition is better managed and I can run and play with my friends and my little sister. I am walking this year, with my family, so that children like me do not have to go through the same pain I have had to go through.
The Walk to Fight Arthritis is a very important fundraiser for people like me, funds raised go to medical research, programs, workshops, resources and so much more. I am proud to walk with my family for such a great cause! Arthritis affects so many people, both young and old. With the help of people like you we CAN have a pain free tomorrow!!
I may have Arthritis, but it doesn't have ME!!
Thank you so much for visiting my page and for helping in my fundraising efforts, YOU ROCK!!
