Juvenile Arthritis Awareness
A team for INTERNATIONAL AUTOIMMUNE ARTHRITIS MOVEMENT
Help IAAM (501c3 global nonprofit) to build a resource website and programs for those affected with Juvenile Autoimmune Arthritis.
The International Autoimmune Arthritis Movement (IAAM) is the first nonprofit in history to band together the group of Autoimmune Arthritis diseases, giving all those affected a platform to make a difference.
All kids 'arthritis' is autoimmune. Our goals:
1- Bring a universal understanding that juvenile versions of these diseases are not the same condition as commonly understood, mainstream "arthritis". Vocabulary in discussing these diseases must change to jumpstart awareness.
2- Create a global database of resources, complete with Juvenile Arthritis organizations, groups, online links and other helpful information for those affected.
3- Develop branches of the IAAM website to focus on specific markets: Young children- 0-6, Kids 7-11, Teens/Pre-Teens 12-16, Young Adults 17-20 and Parents/Family Members.
All moneys raised for this initiative will be used solely to implement the above goals and resources for those affected with Juvenile Arthritis.
