Molly Schreiber | And Then You're at Jax

Patient Leader

I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 29 years ago and Rheumatoid Arthritis 6 years ago. I grew up familiar with diabetes- my grandfather, father, and cousin all had/have Type 1 Diabetes. When i was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, I knew nothing. I felt alone and honestly, I was terrified. Fast forward 6 years and although my diseases may be out of control at times, I am in control thanks to my support communities online. I have made lifelong friendships and know that at 2am, there is someone out there that gets me. I want every newly diagnosed patient with RA or Type 1 to know they are NEVER alone.

When it came to nominating Molly you really can nominate in any category! I chose Facebook though because of her outstanding advocacy work in chronicling her illnesses through the Facebook platform. She does such an amazing job through showing her own journey that it can't help but bring others together through that.  — Ross
