Becca Hartman

Patient Leader

At the age of 17 I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. I am now 25 years old, so I've been a RA warrior for almost 8 years! My fingers, wrists, elbows, knees, and ankles have been affected and I qualify for an elbow replacement due to bone erosion. Proud crew member @ ANRF. "I am a health advocate" because I refuse to battle this disease alone and want my friends/family to witness the widespread effects RA has on me. By sharing pictures and updates, I allow my sphere of influence to join along with my story. I believe that one day a long term cure will be found for those of us who have all forms of arthritis and will continue to share my journey every "flare" of the way!
