About this Live Yes! Connect Group:
Would like to be involved in the Live Yes! Connect group as a way to bring people together who are suffering with Arthritis. Would like to see more social gatherings and opportunities for all age groups, but specifically young adults to come together and have the opportunity to meet others going through similar experiences. I feel like we can all learn from each other and this would be a great opportunity to share tips and tricks that help us in our daily lives..
I was diagnosed with JRA at the age of 3. After seeing many doctors and struggling to find a diagnoses, finally a visit to an out of state children's hospital did the trick. Growing up with this disease is a unique experience, to say the least. No ones journey is the same, however I believe a lot can be learned through others experiences. I have since had multiple surgeries involving my hands/fingers as well as bi-lateral total hip replacement. I, like others living with this disease are on a forever journey, but together, with each others support I feel like we can conquer any road block this disease try's to throw our way. We are warriors!
