Please make a difference to a child's life
Our 2017 Tax Appeal
Six-year-old Oliver is the face of Arthritis SA's appeal to you to help us fund the Paediatric Rheumatology Nurse at the Women's and Children's Hospital.
The position is funded solely by people like you who give to Arthritis SA. Donations to our 2017 Tax Appeal will keep it going for another year, providing support to the 600 South Australian children with arthritis and their parents.
Oliver's story is sadly typical. He often woke screaming as a baby. His legs were sore and his tummy ached. His mum, Melissa, could not console him. Because he didn't have swollen joints, or anything obvious, the doctor said it was "probably growing pains" when Oliver was aged three.
Melissa kept persevering and after seeing a string of specialists ultimately got the sad diagnosis - inflammatory arthritis. She is forever grateful to the Paediatric Rheumatology Nurse who has helped her negotiate complex medication and treatment regimes, "to say nothing of the emotional support".
When you give to our 2017 Tax Appeal, you will make a difference to the 600 little South Australians for life.
