The Arthritis Foundation is the nation’s only voluntary organization committed to the prevention, control and cure of the more than 100 forms of arthritis and related diseases. The Legacy Foundation’s contribution went to the Foundation’s Newly Diagnosed Patient/Parent Training Program at the brand new Rheumatology Clinic in Birmingham, AL. Welcome additions to the clinic were two new Pediatric Rheumatologists, Dr. Randy Cron and Dr. Tim Beukelman (from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia). There is a severe shortage of certified pediatric rheumatologists in the entire country and getting two top rated, qualified doctors was a dream come true for the new clinic. There are nearly 300,000 children in the United States living with juvenile arthritis and the Arthritis Foundation is committed to ensuring access to treatment for every child who suffers from this devastating disease.
