Raegan was diagnosed with Systemic JIA at age 2.5. “Systemic” means it affects not only the joints but also other parts of the body, including the liver, lungs, and heart. SJIA is a very serious an rare form of juvenile arthritis.
There is currently no cure for Systemic JIA. The only way we are going to save our children is by finding effective treatments and ultimately a cure.
The Systemic JIA Foundation uses 100% of donations to fund research specific to SJIA.
