Mackenzie Wilkens
Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
Youth Honoree

Mackenzie Wilkens of Oakfield was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) at age 3 after experiencing severe swelling in both knees, inability to walk, stiffness, and joints warm to the touch. At age 7, Mackenzie was also diagnosed with uveitis, an inflammation of the eyes. Her current treatment plan of weekly injections and once a month infusions is keeping both the JIA and uveitis under control.

Hannah Jenkins
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Young Adult Honoree

Hannah was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 15. As a competitive figure skater and active teen, she faced this new challenge with a lot of uncertainty about what it would mean for her sport and her life. The past few years have included many trips to Children’s Hospital for doctor appointments, cortisone shots, fluid removal and, most recently, a wrist surgery. Through it all, Hannah has continued skating and progressing in her sport and while her life is different, she’s on a medication that is working well for her and is looking forward to heading off to college next year. Hannah credits her awesome Rheumatologist and Orthopedic Surgeon for their help, support and hopefulness as she navigates this new chapter of her life.

Join or support Hannah and her team, Team Jenkins.
