Arthritis Support Network Leader: Deb Type of Arthritis: Rheumatoid Arthritis
About this Arthritis Support Network:
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.
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 co-leader of the Madison group. Having an Arthritis Support Network in Madison will open more doors for support and knowledge. We live in an area where this type of support group is sorely needed.
