Molly Schreiber | And Then You're at Jax

Patient Leader

I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes 28 years ago and Rheumatoid Arthritis 5 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 5 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.

Molly is an inspiration to spoonies and chronic patients in both the Diabetes type 1 and Rheumatoid Athritis communities. She shared her experiences and is an awesome patient advocate  — Paul

Molly has opened up her journey with RA and Diabetes, through the good and the bad, the highs and the lows. She's taken action to not hide anymore, and to help show solidarity, unity, and community through humor, being witty, and raw. As someone who has lived with chronic pain, I value her open window and truths.  — Jessie

Molly is an inspiration to me. We both have #RA. She also is a well of knowledge for people with Type 1 Diabrtes. Her blog posts are always well written and informative. A+++  — Paul

Molly is one of those rare people you find who has the ability to make a huge impact as a patient advocate. Always there to be of support to others, she also doesn't allow her illnesses to define who she is or what she can do. She is an up and coming advocate who can be a voice to bring about change!
