Sarah Hughes was born with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis, and has lived with pain every day. She says of the disease, “It attacks my spinal chord.

I can’t go in the pool or really anything considered normal.” Sarah takes a total of 23 different drugs a day including painkillers and antibiotics to manage the disease. At 23 years old, Sarah received her own adult stem cells with the support of her family and close friends. Follow Sarah on her journey in the videos below.
