Madeline Matos
Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis 
Youth Honoree 

Madeline was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) when she was twelve years old. While having arthritis has changed her life, she is thankful for the lessons she has learned through this diagnosis and the people that it has brought into her life. “I said yes to being an honoree for this event because, within the first two years of receiving my diagnosis, I began running, and have been an avid runner ever since. I had the privilege of competing in the 2021 Jingle Bell Run and I gave the medal I won to the rheumatology clinic at Children’s of Alabama, with the goal of providing hope to all.”
