Arthritis is widely seen as an old person’s disease. So much so, that in the UK no patient support materials existed for children with Systematic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (sJIA). When a child’s sJIA does flare up, there aren’t any visible signs and they often struggle to communicate the pain they are in. We designed the first patient support pack in the UK aimed specifically at children with sJIA, and developed a two-tone wristband that helped them discreetly let a grown-up know just how they’re feeling and when they need help.
Finding the right match and finding it fast really is a matter of life or death. Approximately 86,000 people across Europe are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. Unfortunately, 16 of them will die today because they won’t find their match in time. Yet it takes just minutes to sign-up to become an organ donor. Learn more about our most recent campaign here.
