Why I'm a Kid Volunteer

Hi my name is Ashley Campbell. I am 8 years old. I am in the 2nd grade. I was diagnosed March 7, 2002 with Tourettes Syndrome. I love horses and riding my bike. I am in the Brownies and I help volunteer for the Juvenile Scleroderma Network (JSDN).

I became a volunteer for the JSDN to help other kids with Juvenile Scleroderma (JSD) and my cousin, BJ, because he has JSD. It means a lot to me to help volunteer because I know I can help parents so they know what to do. It is also important to me because I know the kids are being helped too.

I like being a volunteer to help the JSDN get the information out to the parents faster so they can help their kids with JSD. I think other kids should volunteer too so they can help other kids who have JSD. It makes me feel good and happy inside when I volunteer for the JSDN.

I hope the kids get better with their JSD and I hope for a cure!
