We’re transforming the lives of kids and families affected by Juvenile Arthritis and other rheumatic diseases.
Juvenile Arthritis (JA) affects 3 in 1000 kids, making it one of the most common causes of chronic disability in kids in Canada.
Kids with arthritis are resilient, positive and want to do all the activities any child deserves to experience – but they need our help! Since 2007, Cassie + Friends Society has raised over one million dollars to fund research, pediatric rheumatology programs, equipment, support services and educational events to ensure kids and families with rheumatic diseases are not alone.
Whether you or your child has just been diagnosed, or your finding your way through the challenges and triumphs of life with chronic disease, we invite you to join our vibrant community of friends!
