About this Live Yes! Connect Group::
My vision for this support group is to create a group where people can come together who are seeking to learn more about their illness, their loved one's illness, or are simply wanting to hear how others are coping living with arthritis. We want to engage people, create awareness and educate the community about arthritis. If there is specific information that people are seeking then I will make sure to provide them with that information. Our commitment is to serve all of the group participants to the best we can.
Hello! My name is Elida. There is nothing more rewarding to me personally than to help those in need. I have a very deep and personal connection as a long term caregiver to both my Mom who suffers from arthritis and my sister who was born with a disability. Throughout the years, I have been by their sides navigating the healthcare system, sharing in their journey. I am currently working full-time for an organization that serves non-profits. It is my desire to help bring people living with arthritis together for connection, education and empowerment; as well as their caregivers. When I first learned about the opportunity to start a support group in the Boca Raton area, it was an immediate, "YES! How can I help make it happen?"
HI! I am always eager to learn new things and easy to get along. Focused and passionate towards achievement of my goals. I became a facilitator as my way of giving back to this support group for all the information and coping skills I have learned through the website and the support group meetings that I have been to. It has been a great experience to know that I am not alone and to see that there is hope to still have a great life ahead.
