About this Arthritis Support Network:
Together we are empowering people to not just survive with arthritis but to thrive!
I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of ten. Over the last 30 years I learned early that the memories of the physical pains of living with Rheumatoid Arthritis fade, but the emotional pains are not as easily forgotten. I often felt like an outcast struggling with self-esteem and body image issues, it was not until I met another person my age with a similar diagnosis at a support group in Boston when I felt “normal”.
Since that first meeting in Boston I have believed in the power of face to face support and being able to be part of that here in Southern Arizona has been fantastic!
