This has been a long time coming, but I’m super excited about this! A community outreach program/campaign that is entirely about ankylosing spondylitis. A disease that I have. There are over 100 ENTRIES in this campaign and I finally submitted my story. Throughout the month of April I have had the privledge, honor, and quite frankly tears running down my face to read each one of these stories.
Stories about survivors, suffers, friends, and loved ones, all facing the same disease I do every day. Expressing themselves about there AS story in there own unique way. Please consider reading all of them, or maybe just one. Read how so many stories are similar in diagnosis, in treatment, and in suffering in silence.
This campaign is standing up to the disease. Standing Tall, Uniting, creating a wonderful community TOGETHER! We will prevail. We will fight. We will SURVIVE!

Today, I need your help. I submitted my story and would love for you to read it. After reading it, please share it with your friends and family members. Share on Facebook and/or Twitter by using the button at the top of the story. Spread the word that ankylosing spondylitis doesn’t mean that your life needs to stop. That your dreams still can come true. That you can achieve them. How do I know this? I’ve experienced this! I’ve had dreams come true…all while having ankylosing spondlyitis. My journey has just begun, but PLEASE help me in keeping itv alive!
