As many of you may know, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis about 3 years ago. For months my body was in chronic pain and I had no idea why. As an active mother of three it was both a relief and hard to hear that at the age of 42 I had Rheumatoid Arthritis - something I would have to deal with for the rest of my life. Through medication it is now managed, but many days I still have some pain. Many more people I know are afflicted with arthritis - including my husband at a young age and Caitlin's best friend Ayva LeBlanc who was very recently diagnosed. This is my story, but I am so proud of my daughter Caitlin in her quest to raise money and awareness for this autoimmune disease. She is running Falmouth 10K this August and has a goal of $1000+ - she is also walking for Arthristis with a large group of friends on June 23rd. Please help her and many people who quietly suffer with this disease.
