Ricky White

Patient Leader

In 2010 I was diagnosed with the degenerative autoimmune disease: Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS). My advocacy work started shortly after, when I created the EndlessTrax blog. Since then many things have happened in my patient journey and advocate journey, but each step of the way my mission to help raise awareness for AS hasn't faltered. Such that, I am a co-founder and vice-chair for the new 501c3 non-profit - Walk AS One. I live by the motto: “AS like all chronic conditions becomes your life, but this doesn’t mean your life has to become your condition”. When I'm not advocating, then I'm usually writing bestselling books, teaching Martial Arts, or growing Bonsai Trees. :)
