Maria and her husband Dwight jumped into action following Christiana’s death to begin raising awareness about juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and juvenile dermatomyositis. They organized a community basketball game to raise money for research and to let people know about their daughter and her rare autoimmune disease. A year after Christiana’s death, Dwight joined the California Coast Classic, a 525-mile ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles that raises money for the Arthritis Foundation. Two of Christiana’s doctors, one of whom barely knew how to ride, had planned to do the trip and encouraged the girl’s father to go, too.
