“A lot of people don’t realize just how painful arthritis is and that it also affects young children,” says Bryant. “My cousin Emma has suffered from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis since she was 2 years old.

My hope is to raise money for research to discover more effective treatments and – ultimately a cure — for the disease.”
