Spotlight - RA and the Month of May

Living with RA we know it is more than arthritis, it is joint pain, fatigue, flares, we who live with it on a daily basis know, there are many differences between RA and OA. Knowing the difference between the two is the awareness we want to bring to our community over the month of May! While RA may have many invisible symptoms, we don't want our voices to be invisible too!

So over the month of May we want to set the record straight, and bring the awareness we need to our family, friends and the world about rheumatoid arthritis.

There are many ways to participate and help spread the word about RA!
