About Me:
Naya, Age 10

Naya

I woke up one night screaming at the top of my lungs because of pains in my joints. My mom rushed into my bedroom. I told her I couldn't move. She grabbed the phone and called an ambulance. They got there about 10 minutes after she called and lifted me into the ambulance. 

By the time I arrived at the hospital I was in so much pain I thought I wouldn't make it, but I did. I stayed there, in the hospital for about a month.

They tested me for everything you could possibly imagine, even cancer. They finally came to a stop when they reached the answer. When I heard the news about my juvenile arthritis I was in shock. Ever since then I've had juvenile arthritis and I hope they find a cure really soon.
