You Have a Team!

Meet all the people who are working to help you take charge of JA.

By Anne Krueger

Whether or not you’re involved in a sport or group activity, you already have a team. It’s all of the people working with you (or who want to!) to help you feel better. Any disease can make a person feel alone. That is totally understandable. But look at all of the people who are on your side in your journey to be the best you can be – every day with JA!

•  Your family
•  Your doctors and nurses and other health care workers
•  Your close friends whom you’ve told about your JA
•  Your teachers and other school workers who are there to help
•  Your coaches and instructors
•  Your friends at the Arthritis Foundation, local and national
•  The counselors and people who run JA camps
•  All of your online friends at this site
•  Add your helpers to this list!
