I am so privileged to get this opportunity to share our story and help raise awareness for all those in the St. Louis area living with arthritis.
I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis when I was 13 years old. Unfortunately, my fear came true this year as one of my two-year-old twin daughters’, Ava was diagnosed with JIA.Read more about Natalie and Ava's story
