The Juvenile Arthritis Club (JAC) is a non-profit voluntary organisation under the umbrella of the National Arthritis Foundation. It is a support group for children with chronic arthritis.
Eligibility for admission :
If you have been told that your child has been diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA), Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), Juvenile Chronic Arthritis (JCA), Still’s Disease, or any form of Arthritis that affects those under the age of 16 years, this club is for you!
If you are an adult who has lived with Arthritis from a young age, and want to share your experiences and expertise, this club is also for you!
If you are feeling at a loss as to which type of Arthritis your child has, but know that they are suffering from joint pain, or something more than growing pains, this club is for you too!
Activities of the club :
Activities of the Juvenile Arthritis Club include educational talks, seminars and family outings which are organised by the parent volunteers who work together with the medical specialists in the management of Arthritis. The JAC also hopes to be able to help needy families obtain the necessary financial aid.
Please discuss the medical management of you or your child’s arthritis with his/her Rheumatologist.
