Our friends are vital in our mission to transform the lives of kids and families affected by Juvenile Arthritis and other childhood rheumatic diseases – we hope you’ll join us!
Since our founding in 2007, Cassie and Friends has contributed over $1.5 million to bring unprecedented awareness, research and resources to kids and families dealing with the tremendous personal and financial costs of JIA and related conditions. We appreciate the friends and corporate partners who have helped us make a positive difference in so many lives – both today and in the future.
Your gift today will help us meet our current priorities:
- RESEARCH: We want to see more kids achieve quick remission through early diagnosis and tailored, individualized treatments
- EDUCATION: We want to provide kids, teens and families with the tools and resources they need to face their chronic condition, head-on, every day
- CARE: We want to ease the isolation, pain and critical gaps in support facing kids and families
Here are just some of the ways you can show your support for kids and families with Cassie + Friends:

Jonathan was thrilled with the Kids on the Block Show. He’s been having a hard time in school and this was the first time in a long time I had seen him excited about being there. He told me, ‘it was great mom! It made me feel special and not alone.
