Live Yes! Connect Facilitator: Nancy Type of Arthritis: Rheumatoid Arthritis
About this Live Yes! Connect Group:
My vision for this Live Yes! Connect group is I hope we can bring interesting qualified people, in the health field ,together with members of our community who suffer with arthritis . I hope to foster an open honest forum to allow people living with arthritis to learn about their special needs and how to address them. The ultimate goal being a better quality of life with minimal feeling of fear or loss of control.
I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis 20 years ago . It was never a mild case, always aggressive. I lived on steroids until the biologics and have tried almost every new medicine. I have a Masters in Science in Anatomy and have used my education to research and understand the physiology of this disease and the treatments. I started volunteering with my local office only two years ago. I have enjoyed being a part of the Junior Arthritis events and would like to help my office in any way I can. I am presently a facilitator for the Live Yes! Connect Group. Also I am the Live Yes ! Network Leader chair for the local Oklahoma City Arthritis Foundation.
I have fought a good fight against arthritis for twenty plus years. It has not been easy. It takes friends, family, professionals and understanding to know what to do when faced with a diagnosis of arthritis.
