Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
Hailey Steven is 9 years old and at age 4, was diagnosed with polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis or arthritis in 5 or more joints. It took a while to get a correct diagnosis, however finding the right doctor led to success in treating her arthritis. She tries not to let arthritis slow her down but aversions to methotrexate made treating the disease more difficult. Changing her medication allowed her to feel better physically and emotionally. She loves to dance, play softball and hang out with friends and she hopes sharing her story will help others with their diagnosis.
