Live Yes! Connect launched: 2015

Live Yes! Connect Facilitator: Deb                   Type of Arthritis: Rheumatoid Arthritis

About this Live Yes! Connect Group:                         

Working together, we will create a welcoming warm sharing atmosphere!  I see the group as a place where especially those with little to no support system at home can come and feel heard, understood, and cared about.  I believe that the group can serve both as a point of emotional strength and as an educational group.

About:  Deb

Hi Everyone!!  I'm Deb.  I have had RA since I was 13 years old.  My background for schooling is I graduated from Mount Mary College with a double major in Dietetics and Biology.  I have been the Board Chair for the Leadership Board of the Upper Midwest Region for the Arthritis Foundation for about 2+ years and Board Member for 3+ years.  I am the Advocacy Chair and an Advocacy Ambassador for AF.  I am involved with the arthritis community.  I have had a knee replacement, wrist fusion and 2 cervical neck fusions.  I have SPAD- (Selective Polysaccharide Antibody Deficiency) and MGUS (Monoclonal Gammopathy of Undetermined Significance).

I enjoy Advocacy and am empowered by telling my story.  We all have so much to share and learn from each other.  I am honored to serve you as the facilitator of the Madison group.  Having a Live Yes! Connect group in Madison will open more doors for support and knowledge.  We live in an area where this type of support group is sorely needed.
