December 2015 was one of the best and worst months of my life....for several months I had been in extreme pain, swelling, joint restriction, my body was turning on me and attacking itself.... what was happening to me? After several tests and examinations I found myself at the office of rheumatologist Dr Shaikh.... Krysta he said you have rheumatoid arthritis.... in that moment my first thought was my career is over what am I going to do...but as I got through that first visit I had confidence in this doctor that told me the way to treat this was with an aggressive treatment plan and that there was hope....fast forward to today where I have had some bumps along the way but am happy to report I am symptom free and kicking RA in the butt !!!! This year I am participating in the walk for arthritis to raise awareness and help fund research for autoimmune diseases like RA !!! Together we can fight and make a difference !!!! Follow my page and sponsor me if you are able !!! Looking forward to bringing awareness, positivity and hope to those living with Arthritis!
There is no cure for arthritis – a painful and devastating disease - that is why I am participating in the Walk for Arthritis.
Today, more than 6 million Canadians are affected by arthritis. These numbers are only going to increase. By 2035, 1 in 4 Canadians will have arthritis. That means you or your wife, your mother or your brother just may have arthritis.
As the prevalence of arthritis increases, so does the demand for investment into cutting-edge research, proactive advocacy and innovative information and support that will deliver better health outcomes for people affected by arthritis.
This year the Walk for Arthritis is celebrating its 10th year - help make this the best year ever by joining the Walk for Arthritis community and supporting this important cause!
