Juliet Gilmore
Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
Youth Honoree

Juliet's family really didn't know what was in store for her until she was 18 months old. She struggled to crawl and walk. One morning she woke up with a swollen knee. They took her to Cardinal Glennon for x-rays and blood work. After draining her knee, tests confirmed juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). She is currently battling a liver sensitivity, uveitis and symptoms of glaucoma. This is just an example of the lifelong complications of arthritis. Juliet is only 5 and has been through so much. Her parents are so proud of her. She is their brave arthritis warrior and the reason they fight.
