Hailey Daniels, Juvenile Arthritis Advocate
Hailey Daniels “doesn’t just want to survive with arthritis;” say those closest to her; “she wants to help and inspire others.” The Salt Lake City teen, who has juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, says, “When you have a struggle…you need to take it and just turn it into a positive experience.”
That outstanding spirit is surely one reason Hailey was asked by the Arthritis Foundation to serve as their 2012 Youth Honoree for the fundraising/awareness walk they held in May. KSL News Radio also surprised her at school to give her a “High Five” award; I have a feeling this high school student better make some room on her mantel, because the awards are going to keep on coming. ;)
