I am not 20 years old, but I was diagnosed with JDMS when I was 7. Its a long and tough journey but with God and loving parents, as long as she takes her medications and follows what the doctors say she will do just fine. I am currently in remission, but I've had the disease on and off for pretty much 14 years now. I was diagnosed very early, and if it wasnt for that, I have no idea where I would be. I went to Dr. Jane El-Dahr at Tulane University Medical Center in New Orleans, LA. She's an amazing doctor, and I love her to death. I really hope that things are going great for all of your children. I aslo ask that if your children are interested in sports, please encourage them to play. I played softball up until I was 10, and had to quit because the disease came back on and was pretty rough. I would have given anything to keep playing. Since that happened, I've been out of the sports stuff and have honestly become out of shape. One of the main things with this disease is to stay fit and in shape, the stronger your muscles are, the easier you are able to fight this illness. I wish you all the best of luck.
