Tory Aquino

Patient Leader

When my child was diagnosed with a form of juvenile arthritis I decided to do everything we can to advocate, raise awareness and fundraise for a cure. There are over 300,000 kids living with chronic pain because of this disease. Our goal is to raise awareness and give hope that one day we will have a cure. We have a pages on most social media called Mariah's Movers where we make posters and advocate through the year. We also take our voices to Harrisburg and to Washington DC to advocate yearly. In our community we have an annual carnival to spread awareness about juvenile arthritis and to raise money for a cure! My daughter had juvenile arthritis but juvenile arthritis does not have her!
