Cathy Kramer

Patient Leader

Rheumatoid arthritis is a part of who I am. Understanding that, I share my journey of RA and how it relates to my family, friends, career, and self on a daily basis. I also promote the practice of self-care while living with a chronic illness. I am a strong believer in gratitude and leaving a smile everywhere I go. I am most importantly a wife, mother, sister, and adult education instructor.


Lifetime Achievement Best in Show: Facebook Advocating for Another

Here is an advocate that tirelessly makes a a difference across all different social media platforms! Someone who day in and day out makes a difference in advocating yet I don't think gets enough recognition of the real difference she makes. For years she has been a patient leader and continues to be!  — Ross

I wasn't sure which category I would end up nominating this beautiful woman for, but, as Cathy plays the role of friend/fellow advocate in my life, I would say Advocating for Another fits BEST. I would also nominate her for "Comforting Another" because her empathy is as genuine as it gets. <3 She is a joy to ALL & her activism inspires me daily.  — Kenzie
