Eve to Support Arthritis Research UK Adolescent Arthritis Campaign

Eve has agreed to share her story as part of Arthritis Research UK's new campaign on adolescent arthritis, having developed the disease at the age of 14. Quite often people think of arthritis as an older person's ailment or a natural part of growing old. Juvenile idiopathic arthritis is an illness which develops in young people when their own immune system attacks the synovia, or the linings of the joints. Its effects are not limited to the joints: it can affect the heart and eyes, cause anaemia and other problems and is associated with some types of cancer. Much can be done to stop the disease progressing and give young people a brighter future.
