Your Stories

Share your childs journey with us to help inspire others. It may be a sport they love, an achievement, an aspiration or a story about how they are trying to overcome JIA. It’s your stories that really help to inspire and encourage others. They help to raise awareness of JIA and what children can achieve despite the daily struggles they face.

Meet Jazmin

No matter what, it can be done

Jazmin’s passion for Geography has stuck with her since being hospitalised for months in Great Ormond Street Hospital when she was very young. She took it at GCSE level, A Level, Undergraduate level, Master level and is now studying PhD level!

Becoming a Volcanologist is not just fulfilling a life dream for Jazmin, but she says, ‘a statement to the JIA community that no matter what you want to be in life, it can be done despite the condition.’ Jazmin, and many other children striving to be the best they can be, are all living proof that JIA is just part of you, and despite it, you can achieve what you want to in life.
