Keeping it Real With Arthritis Stories
Whether you are living with rheumatoid arthritis or another type of arthritis, we all have a unique story that deserves to be voiced, heard and shared. Equally of importance, is showing an accurate depiction of those living with the disease and providing a real-life glance of who the person is– their interests, passions, hobbies, goals, career, likes, dislikes and so on, behind the veil of arthritis.
Not only can sharing our stories raise awareness but also illuminate our paths for us to see that we are not alone on this journey and have common experiences with one another.
