Lene Andersen

Patient Leader

I am an award-winning writer, health and disability advocate and photographer living in Toronto, Canada. I have had rheumatoid arthritis since I was four years old and have used a power wheelchair since my teens. I'm passionate about helping others who live with RA, pain and disability to live better lives, as well as bringing about positive change in the way we are viewed and treated by others. I am the author of Your Life with Rheumatoid Arthritis: Tools for Managing Treatment, Side Effects and Pain and other books on living well with chronic illness..
