Driver’s lucky escape
From page 1
“It doesn’t just affect the child, it
affects the family, the carers and
everyone around them.”
The condition has taken a toll
on her life both emotionally and
physically. “I was discriminated
against at school because people
didn’t know what juvenile arthritis
was and they didn’t understand,”
Ms Hammond said.
A misdiagnosed hip injury left her
wheelchair bound for three years
and needing a hip replacement, but
she has been told she is too young
to have the operation.
She is blind in one eye and lives
with the autoimmune condition
lupis, as well as chronic pain.
Despite that, Ms Hammond lives
a full life running Kids Arthritis
Australia and volunteering with
Hills Radio and the Echunga CFS.
“My overall goal in life is to
change the way the world views
juvenile arthritis,” she said. Those
she reaches through Kids Arthritis
Australia say she is doing exactly
that. “I get told on a daily basis
that ‘Sarah, you have changed our
lives’,” Ms Hammond said.
