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.
