2013 JBR Queensbury Youth Honoree
Jillian is a ten-year-old girl with a form of Juvenile Arthritis that affects her tendons. At the age of eight she started complaining of pain in her ankles. A year later she was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis which now affects her knees. Jillian loves every aspect of dancing and is very athletic and competitive. Participating has become more difficult for her. She has now found a love for swimming. Thankfully she is a fun, loving, compassionate young girl with big dreams because every day she wakes up faced with challenges. Her invisible struggles have been the most difficult of all. The support of the Arthritis Foundation and other families has helped us all realize she is not alone.
