Still’s disease is a rare and often misunderstood disease which strikes both children and adults.
Still’s disease is a form of arthritis that is characterized by high spiking fevers and evanescent (transient) Salmon Colored Rash (Photos) Still’s disease was first described in children, but it is now known to occur, much less commonly, in adults (in whom it is referred to as Adult-Onset Still’s Disease).

Why the Dragon:
With Still’s disease there are daily fevers which can exceed 104°. When looking for a symbol to represent Still’s disease the founding members felt the fire breathing Dragon best represented these daily high fevers. Those with Still’s fight to find the medications that will put their Still’s into remission and tame the fires of this symbolic Dragon forever.
