Emma C.

Hi my name is Emma Coe. I was diagnosed with (JIA) when I was five. My right pointer finger started swelling and hurting one Sunday morning. The doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with me for three months.

Thanks to my doctor at Children's Hospital in Birmingham, I am doing great with my arthritis. My jaw has arthritis, but I do not have pain with it. So, that is a good thing. 

My hobbies are soccer, four dance classes, singing, and playing outside during free time. During the summer time I also do a lot of swimming. 

Thanks to the Arthritis Foundation I get to attend Camp M.A.S.H. I have met so many wonderful friends at camp and I can't wait to go this summer.

My name is Emma Coe and I learned to face getting through Arthritis and not run away from it.
