Angelina Amilibia
Juvenile Arthritis
Adult Honoree

Angelina was diagnosed with juvenile arthritis at the age of 5 when her parents noticed her knees were abnormally large. It was hard for Angelina to feel normal from elementary through college after years of different medications, hundreds of doctor appointments, MRI’s, draining’s, and shots. She didn’t want this disease to limit her quality of life and takes extra care to stay active and eat healthy. Angelina recently moved to Seattle and became active in the Arthritis Foundation where she has connected with a community that shares similar experiences. She is so grateful for the Foundation and all the support that it offers for those affected with arthritis.

Will W.
Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
Youth Honoree

At 8 years old, Will had recurring joint pain in his foot that doctors could not explain or successfully treat. The 2 1/2-year journey leading up to his diagnosis was difficult. Will was not able to participate in sports and school activities, he struggled to understand why he always had pain, and he routinely expressed feelings of hopelessness while experiencing pain in new joints. His parents struggled to support him. Finally, after a 10-day steroid trial and a positive HLA B-27 test, Will was diagnosed with enthesitis-related juvenile idiopathic arthritis.

Will’s current treatment includes daily pills and a weekly shot. Although he still struggles with occasional flare-ups, Will now lives mostly pain-free. Will’s family is grateful for the support and community provided by the Arthritis Foundation and look forward to raising funds to help find a cure.
