Did you know that juvenile arthritis affects more kids than juvenile diabetes? By 2030, an estimated 67 million people will be diagnosed with some form of the disease. 
Janet Wyatt with the Arthritis Foundation in Virginia is in DC lobbying local lawmakers. She is worried that the automatic spending cuts will leave less money for critical research and, someday, a cure. Wyatt encourages local residents to call Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine. Children and veterans are the fastest growing groups with the condition.
