The Topic for submission is Why Is JA Different From OA?
This is extrememly important on so many levels. There are people out there who still don't know that arthritis can affect kids. The type of arthritis that affects kids is Juvenile Arthritis which is Autoimmune Arthritis which is different from our Grandma's Arthritis. It is not the same as a little arthritis in your knee!
Please send in your submissions and let us know why they differ! People need to know that when kids are sick from arthritis, it is often more severe and can be more life-threatening, but if they can catch it early, that is the key!!!
You can not be born with Arthritis but you can be born with Autoimmune Arthritis...Tell us about it!!!

I will give a prize to the blog post that has put the most time, thought and creativity into it...So...start writing!!
