Patient Leader

Hi my name is Wendy and I am so honored to be nominated for this award. I was diagnosed in 2011 with RA and have been struggling with this disease. I decided if this disease could not be cured, then perhaps I can make a difference by reaching out and helping others. I have helped to start a facebook support group. Friends and Family of Autoimmune Diseases. I advocate with the ACR and have been to Washington DC to try to spread awareness, and while there went to NIH and NIAAMs, to learn more about autoimmune disease and help in anyway I can with research and awareness to help us find treatment and cures. I also work with IFAA, the international foundation of autoimmune arthritis, which does so much to help spread awareness of autoimmune arthritis, and help educate others. Thank you so much.
