Small and mighty. That’s how many describe twelve year old middle school student Mason from Wyoming. Mason is just like any other twelve year old boy… he likes to hang out with his friends, play hockey and baseball, travel and pick on his little sister. What makes him different from most other kids is that Mason is living with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. Diagnosed at age three, Mason has grown up with this autoimmune disease that destroys joints, bones, muscles, cartilage and other connective tissues. JIA prevents him from moving his joints properly, often hampering or halting his physical movement.
