Help Tyler raise money

My Story…

Dear family & friends,

Last year, the doctors thought I had something called Chronic Recurrent Multifocal Osteomylitis.  When the pain in my hips, knees, ankles and hands continued despite treatment, along with one month of fever, the diagnosis changed to a subtype of juvenile arthritis called Enthesitis Related Arthritis (ERA).

Since my diagnosis of ERA this past year, my family and I have learned much from the Cassie & Friends foundation.  I am still on my path to getting better and trying a new medication.  I no longer have to take 9 pills a day, but now I get an infusion every 2 months at a nearby clinic.  The pain has not disappeared completely yet so we may have to switch meds again.  I am thankful that I am still able to play basketball, tennis and ride my bike.

Please support this charity that spreads awareness, educates, and helps other families going through this journey. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Cassie + Friends is the only charity in Canada 100% dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families affected by Juvenile Arthritis and other rheumatic diseases. Since 2007, we've raised over $2.5 million for JA research, equipment, education and support. By 2023, our goal is to touch the lives of 10,000 or more children and their families per year to help them not just survive but thrive with chronic disease.

Juvenile Arthritis is a painful, chronic disease impacting every 3 in 1,000 or 24,000 children in Canada. That’s just as common as Juvenile Diabetes and twice as common as cystic fibrosis - and yet receives far less attention and funding. We need your help to make sure no child is robbed of their childhood or future because of Juvenile Arthritis (JA) or any rheumatic disease!

100% of your donation will go towards Cassie + Friends support programs and research for juvenile arthritis. This will include our brand new injection support program, youth mentorship, parent support cupboards, expert-led webinars and our research partnerships with pediatric rheumatology clinics across Canada.

Thank you for support Team Cassie + Friends and helping us get one step closer to a pain-free future for kids!
