KIDS LEAD ARTHRITIS WALK FOR A CURE AT SBCC                by Bonnie Carroll


Muller & Weber Kids were among 2018 walkers to Cure Arthritis

The public of all ages, including an army of young kids and senior citizens, showed up to walk for a cure for Arthritis at Santa Barbara City College on Cinco de Mayo, and walk they did! The one mile or three mile walk through the campus and along the beach on West Cabrillo Boulevard attracted a bevy of supporters and friends of the fight to find a cure for arthritis. Once again it was a heart warming morning for all in attendance to raised needed funds.

Michal Weisbrock Presents Award to Youth Honoree 2018 Madison Scott

Kids loved the 'Kids Zone' where face painting and fun activities reigned. Pets were welcome and many walkers brought their dogs to enjoy the day by the beach. A food table in the center of everything provided fresh fruits, water and other healthy goodies for attendees. Teams representing event sponsors, local senior groups, area physical therapy groups including Muller & Weber and more could be seen in colored shirts walking across the SBCC bridge to begin the walk.

The Santa Barbara Walk to Cure Arthritis 2018 featured three local honorees who are putting a face on the diagnosis. The 2018 Youth Honoree is seven year old Madison “Madi” Scott of Santa Clara, daughter of Jeff and Vanessa Scott, who is living with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA). Just five years ago, at age two and a half, Madi had a very swollen knee that was very painful and rapidly got worse. Her pediatrician referred her parents to pediatric rheumatologist Dr. Miriam Parsa. After extensive testing, Madi was diagnosed with JIA, placed on specialized medications and almost immediately, her knee swelling and pain were reduced. Madi continues to take medicine, go to physical therapy and is now able to play with her friends, swim, dance, ride horseback and even participate in gymnastics!

Adult Honoree Brady Bowman

The 2018 Adult Honoree is Brady Bowman of Santa Barbara, who, just two years ago at the age of 34, was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS). Brady had always played basketball, volleyball and gone snowboarding; and experienced what he thought were “normal” back pains from his active lifestyle. After a really rigorous day of landscaping, he could hardly get out of bed and had “pink eye.” These symptoms subsided a bit, yet were still painful, so Brady went to an ophthalmologist for his eyes—found he had uveitis and eventually tested positive for HLA-B27, the marker for AS. With a proper diagnosis and under the care of a rheumatologist (arthritis doctor); Brady undergoes injections every 2 weeks that keep the arthritis managed and able to continue to work, and enjoy time with his wife Jen and their two kids Wes (age 7) and Parker (age 3).

Medical Honoree Dr. Sara Taroumian

The 2018 Medical Honoree is Dr. Sara Taroumian of Santa Barbara. Dr. Taroumian is a board certified rheumatologist who completed her rheumatology training at UCLA and did her internal medicine training at the University of Arizona where she was a chief resident. She has been working at the Sansum Clinic for the past 4.5 years.  She manages a variety of rheumatologic diseases in her practice and utilizes ultrasonography in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of these conditions. She believes that patient education is one of the most important aspects of treatment as she sees the doctor and the patient as partners working towards the common goal of improving that patient’s quality of life. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling and enjoying Santa Barbara’s beautiful outdoors. Following the introduction of each honoree Michal Weisbrock presented them all with gift bags and honoree awards.

Kids Getting the Crowd Ready to Walk

According to Michal Wiesbrock, Executive Director of the Arthritis Foundation’s Central Coast Office, “More than 50,000 adults and children in Santa Barbara County have the diagnosis of arthritis. Arthritis is costly, painful and debilitating, and makes a significant impact in the lives of people in this community, including children. By participating in and raising funds for the 2018 Santa Barbara Walk to Cure Arthritis, everyone helps us reach our local goal of raising $90,000, which will move us that much closer to better treatment options and a cure.”

The Walk to Cure Arthritis is nationally presented by Amgen with additional sponsorship support from AbbVie, Sanofi Genzyme Regeneron and Bristol-Myers Squibb. The Santa Barbara Walk to Cure Arthritis is locally sponsored by Massage Envy, Cottage Center for Orthopedics, The Berry Man, Inc., Sansum Clinic, Pfizer, Vionic Group LLC, Central Coast Hospice, and Vista del Monte Retirement Community.
