Arthritis is close to our hearts here at EaZyHold. We invented our universal cuffs because of the arthritis we were suffering from and knew there was a whole world of people our age trying to accomplish everyday tasks with great difficulty due to stiffness and pain in their joints.
When one talks about arthritis, you typically think of a “baby boomer,” a grandparent, or even a great-grandparent. Though nearly 300,000 children in America have been diagnosed with juvenile arthritis, it’s not something people are very aware of and we want you to help us change that!
Children that suffer from juvenile arthritis are not experiencing typical aches and pains that you may experience as an adult; they have various types of autoimmune arthritis that cause their immune system to attack their joints, causing swelling, stiffness, pain and even permanent damage. A child with juvenile arthritis may lose their sight, motor function, inhibit bone growth, and can be fatal if left untreated.
July is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness month! In the age of social media, raising awareness to any cause is more profound and easy to do. This July, you can help those afflicted with arthritis by making a donation to arthritis research, wearing blue for the month of July, sharing relevant posts to your social media accounts, use the hashtag #curearthritis, and tell at least one person in your life about juvenile arthritis.
