About this Arthritis Support Network:     

My vision for this support group is to create a group where people can come together who are seeking to learn more about their illness, their loved ones illness, or are simple wanting to hear how others are coping living with arthritis.  I want to engage people, create awareness and educate the community about arthritis. If there is specific information that people are seeking then I will make sure to provide them with that information.   My commitment, is to serve all of the group participants to the best I can.

About:  Elida

Hello! My name is Elida.  There is nothing more rewarding to me personally than to help those in need.  I have   a very deep and personal connection as a long term caregiver to both my Mom who suffers from arthritis and my sister who was born with a disability.  Throughout the years,  I have been by their sides navigating the healthcare system, sharing in their journey.  I am currently working full- time for an organization that serves nonprofits.  It is my desire to help bring people living with arthritis together for connection, education and empowerment; as well as their caregivers.  When I first learned about the opportunity to start a support group in the Boca Raton area, it was an immediate, "YES! How can I help make it happen?"  

Currently, we do not have an Arthritis Support Network.  Therefore, we need to create one in our community.  Our purpose is to provide resources, share experiences, connect and encourage one another as we journey together.  A good support group leader is one who leads the group towards the same goals and mission, but it takes a team of people to accomplish those goals. I welcome the opportunity to serve in this capacity by providing compassion to those living with arthritis, and their caregivers, to know that we are not alone in our journey.
