Are you unable to tie your shoes or put your hair in a ponytail? Is it a struggle to walk up each morning? Are you wondering why you are in so much pain?

Or...have you just been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and can barely pronounce it, much less tell people what it is?

Myth or Fact...add your comment or story.

When I first told someone that I was going to work at the Arthritis Foundation, they laughed and said I will contact you when I am in my 60's. How wrong was that comment? Arthritis can affect anyone at any time. In fact, 300,000 children live with arthritis daily. Arthritis is a serious condition and one that I hope to find a cure. More than 46 million people in American have been doctor diagnosed with arthritis and/or the 100 different diseases associated with arthritis. If you are one of the 46 million, the Arthritis Foundation, Rocky Mountain Chapter is here to help...
