Why do I volunteer to raise funds to find a cure? Arthritis is the number one cause of disability in America. My journey with arthritis began over twenty-five years ago when I developed osteoarthritis in my left knee due to two surgeries. Six years ago, I was diagnosed with a rare form of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). I am fighting for a cure for me, for my family, and for other arthritis patients.
We are lucky to have Deb as part of our Arthritis Support Network in Wisconsin. Deb is nothing short of amazing. Deb was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 13 and wants folks to know that family, with her, comes first. She is incredibly active with her sons school, loves to scrapbook, bake and cook. It's important to note that there is really nothing that Deb does not have a hand-in when it comes to being the best possible advocate for our tribe. She really believes that having a support network around you makes all the difference in your healing journey.
