Walk With Me Daddy!
By Jennifer Francisco
“I have recently written a book called “Walk with me daddy” The book is a true story based on a little boy and his dad and how they spend a day together. The little boy knows that his dad is different because he knows his dad is sick, but the little boy still loves his dad and cherishes the moments they do spend together even if it is a walk in the park.
His dad has a disease called Rheumatoid Arthritis. Rheumatoid or RA, is a disease that has no cure at this time but with with every book that is purchased part of the proceeds will go to help a family with Arthritis. RA, is a chronic form of inflammatory arthritis, it is also an autoimmune disease. Doctors are unable to understand at this time why a patients immune systems mistakenly attacks their own body tissue, causing painful swelling and fatigue. In some cases even bone erosion.
RA, is often thought of as an elderly disease but studies have proved it effects younger people, men and women between the ages of 30-50. Studies have also proved that it is now affecting over 298,000 children a year.”
