Arthritis Foundation Honors Sufferer

John Lynch, pictured, didn’t let a diagnosis of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis prevent him from having a rewarding legal career. Nor has the disease prevented him from being an active and involved father to his two children. But he’s felt the pain of arthritis in myriad ways. “I have severe joint degradation in my hands and feet,” he said. “My feet impair me from running, but I swim. I have symptoms all the time and swimming helps alleviate the pain.” So this year’s honoree for the Arthritis Foundation’s Spokane Jingle Bell Run/Walk will be helping at the registration booth instead of lacing up his running shoes/Cindy Hval, SR.

Question: Do you or any family members suffer from arthritis?
