Live Yes! Connect relaunched: 2018
Live Yes! Connect Facilitator: Becky Type of Arthritis: Rheumatoid Arthritis
About this Live Yes! Connect Group:
For the Live Yes! Connect group in Denver, I envision a group that can meet bi-monthly to gather to learn about different areas of arthritis management (i.e. pain management, medication, specialists, exercise, etc.) and the opportunity to connect with others in the community. I plan to build a group that supports each other and can empower each other to live confidentially with their arthritis.
Hi there! My name is Becky and I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at the age of 4. In my teenage years, I went through remission, but then developed RA again as an adult. I love to be involved with the Arthritis Foundation, especially volunteering for the Walk and Jingle Bell Run every year. I currently run my own environmentally sustainable business company called B.Green Events, that focuses on incorporating environmental initiatives into events. In my spare time, I love to hike the beautiful Colorado mountains and enjoy time outdoors with friends and family.
I am leading a group because I recently was involved in a support group and enjoyed the opportunity to meet others in the community and network with others living with arthritis. I found that as someone who has lived with arthritis my entire life, I bring an opportunity to help others understand their disease and how to manage and live with it every day. I'm excited to be a community leader as I believe I can help others see that living with arthritis can be positive and want to bring empowerment and community together.
