Lucy’s cartwheeling through JIA

She lives life to the full 

Written by mum, Jane, for Lucy, age 8. 

“My daughter Lucy has arthritis, she was diagnosed age 2 and is now 8. She has had her ups and downs over the years but never fails to amaze us with her bravery and positivity. She lives life to the full and doesn’t let the arthritis hold her back despite the nasty meds and endless medical appointments. Lucy is very active and loves swimming and doing cartwheels wherever she can!

“She loved the JIA weekend we attended with CCAA last year, especially the kayaking and den making. She really enjoyed meeting others her age with arthritis and still talks about the friends she made over a year on.”
