Cindy Marie Powell
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Adult Honoree

Cindy’s arthritis journey began seven years ago. She had joint pain in her shoulders, knees, and hands. One day while massaging her hands, Cindy recalled that her grandmother, who suffered from severe rheumatoid arthritis, used to do the same thing. Bloodwork confirmed her diagnosis and the challenges of finding the right therapies and medications began.

Cindy has an extremely busy career as a Clinic Director for Florida Orthopaedic Institute. She says, “I do not have time to let arthritis hold me back!” With the help of her rheumatologist and a current regimen, Cindy says, “With these therapies I can enjoy spending time with my family, spoiling my adorable grandsons, going on cruises, and cheering on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers!”

Ellanora Moates
Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
Youth Honoree

After weeks of fevers, swelling and inability to walk, Ellanora was diagnosed with COVID-19 and was hospitalized with MIS-C and treated with IV-IG and IV steroids. After stopping steroids, inflammation and fevers quickly returned. Ellanora was then diagnosed with systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Her parents are thankful rheumatology at JHACH was involved from the initial diagnosis of the MIS-C. Steroids, injections and infusions were no success. She now takes Xeljanz and Methotrexate and is weaning off Prednisolone. Recently, she’s seen great improvement in mobility and decrease in swelling and flares.

Ellanora loves swimming, aerial yoga, and dance classes. She also does physical therapy. Ellanora is excited to be the Youth Honoree and help spread awareness that Kids Get Arthritis Too!
