About #WearPurpleForJIA

NRAS have been involved with #WearPurpleForJIA since 2016, which is when Lynette Haselip a Mum who young daughter Farah had been diagnosed with JIA came up with the whole idea to get more people aware of JIA in children.

Like many parents whose children are diagnosed it came as a shock and not realising that children could get arthritis too. Farah is now 10 and continues to struggle with her JIA but like most of the children and families we now know well she never gives up and is an inspiration to us all.  Lynette and Farah are stalwart supporters of the campaign and  became Patrons of #WearPurpleForJIA in 2019.

#WearPurpleForJIA has spread far and wide with people and places all over the UK being involved. It has connected people who thought they were on this journey alone and now they have found support and friendships.
