Arthritis in young adults

I was diagnosed with scoliosis in 2013. My first spinal fusion operation was in 2015 at 18 years old. I then underwent a second op in 2018 at 21 years old.

Now, 2020 I am 23, and 5 days ago have just been diagnosed with arthritis in my back and disc desiccation. No one should have to go through this at any age. I wish when I first started this process, that I knew a lot more, and there was more funding to help myself and other people in this situation.

Be a good human and donate to help out.

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Juvenile Arthritis Research, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

More information about Juvenile Arthritis Research: Juvenile Arthritis Research's vision is a world where no child has to suffer from arthritis. Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) is an autoimmune disorder affecting children and young people where the body starts to attack the joints, causing inflammation, pain and reduced mobility. We are working to find a cure for JIA, whilst supporting children with JIA and their families, and raising awareness to help improve diagnosis and make societal changes to make life easier for every child with JIA.
