My name is Edd Pedro and my daughter Kelsey was diagnosed with JRA (Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis) at the age of 3. Thanks to the miracle of modern medicine, her JRA is under control. As a result, we have been giving back to the Arthritis Foundation to help them fight for a cure for everyone with Arthritis. I'm holding the 14th annual Edd Pedro’s Fight for a Cure Wiffle ball tournament at Slater Memorial Park in Pawtucket, Rhode Island 02861.
