Listening to this story on Channel 10 brought tears to my eyes. William was diagnosed with Systemic Juvenile Arthritis, a rare form of arthritis. William passed away from an infection related to his JIA at 6 years of age, one month before he was to fulfill his wish of visiting Dream World and Movie World on the Gold Coast.

His wonderful parents are keeping William’s memory alive by encouraging everyone to fundraise and participate in their event – William’s Walk which will be held at Parramatta Park on Sunday the 23rd March 2014. A friend of mine is Walking for William. If you can’t make it to Parramatta Park please support Bayly by donating. Bayly is another Juvenile Arthritis warrior and has shown amazing strength during his battle with the disease.
