Are you wearing blue today?

Today, October 12th, is World Arthritis Day.   On World Arthritis Day people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal disorders from around the world join together to make their voices heard.  You can join in and raise your voice too!

Here’s how others are raising their voices:
This is the mom of a young girl, who by the age of 12 (YES 12!) has had both hips replaced with titanium; she’s wearing her blue today!
This is Bean, another little girl living with JA…she’s wearing her blue
The Empire State Building honored World Arthritis Day on Oct. 12, 2011 by shining its world-famous tower lights in all blue
Billboard in Times Square, New York honoring World Arthritis Day and the Arthritis Foundation Fight Arthritis Pain campaign
Here’s Bevin in front of her tile at our new neighborhood park…spreading the word about JA
This arm belongs to a little girl, Esella, almost 3 years old who is also living with JA.


No pink ribbons, No telethon, No spokesperson, No TV commercials....
Just 300,000 kids who suffer in silence daily...Without a cure. Please 'Do Blue' today for my daughter and all of the other heroes who live with Juvenile Arthritis. Kids Get Arthritis Too!!

Today is World Arthritis Day!


Wear blue today to support any of these kids, or any one else you know that suffers from this disease…

Where’s your blue?
