  1. Great video! Made me kind of emotional. Very proud of all who worked on this. Thank you!

  2. WOW! I would have never thought I’d need tissue to watch a video about RA. But I did….. thank you so VERY much for putting what people with RA face on a daily basis. It’s tough, really tough. And to see all the people who put themselves out there to share the struggles helps allot. Thank you for bringing awareness!!!

  3. Great video. After being dx’ed at the age of 7, I’ve had to learn to live with a lot of pain, and issues with joint problems. I’ll be sharing this with people!

  4. Thank you for sharing this. My daughter was diagnosed 3 years ago With RA. While she was growing up she was always having a lot of joint pain and now we know why.My beautiful daughter is only 24 and it is so hard to see the pain and suffering she goes through. I hope some day in the near future they find a cure or better treatments that are not so disabling in them selves.God bless all those who are suffering and to my daughter Jackie i Love you!!

  5. Thank you for this awesome presentation, allowing those who know first-hand about the horrific affects of this aweful disease (and the current medications and treatments that are used to treat its symptoms), to share their experiences and their needs openly. My heart is heavy for all who face the challenges that RA brings, and I pray that God will empower the caregivers, medical staff and patients with wisdom to know the best treatment and care for all afflicted. God bless all who are suffering, and to my beautiful Barbara, I LOVE YOU!!
