Mikaela, 17 refuses to be beaten by arthritis

Thank you to Mikaela Peters for holding a Charity Car Show for Arthritis Queensland on the weekend. The event was a huge success with over 100 cars on show and $800 raised for services for people living with arthritis. Mikaela was also featured in the Sunshine Coast Daily:http://bit.ly/1JSPAZt.

Arthritis is a condition not normally associated with teenagers but Mikaela Peters' short life has been crippled by joint pain.

But it hasn't all been doom and gloom. Living with arthritis has allowed her to develop her love of 4WDs and photography.

She has spent the past two years taking photos at car shows and befriending organisers and fellow car enthusiasts.

At a charity event last year she was approached to hold her own fundraising event and today that dream will come true when she hosts a 4WD and import car show to raise money for Arthritis Queensland.

Mikaela said the whole experience has made her a much better person.
