A.S. Face 0128: Peggy

A Sister’s Love:
Have to post this…my sister( in picture above)  has had AS for about 25 to 30 years, back before most dr’s even knew what it was. It took them 7 yrs to diagnose her and she has been my inspiration and my hero. She rarely if ever complains and she is helping me learn to live with RA and Fibromyalgia. when I asked her why she didn’t submit her story to “Faces of AS” she said ” I don’t know what to say, I’m not good at writing stories.” She has extreme pain everyday and now has developed some shortness of breath. untill recently she worked a full-time job as a custodian at a high school. I just wanted to let everyone know that she is my hero and I don’t know what I would do without her! If I could take her pain for even 1 day I would gladly do it!
Love you sissy! I am so proud of you!    Charlene McKenney

  1. Dear Charlene,
    Thank you so much for sharing your story with us.
    If only all the “Peggy’s” in the world were so lucky as your Peggy. This touched my heart so deeply, to know that you love your sister enough to know about her disease, encourage her to share her story, and then share with the world she is your hero. Seems like there are two heros in your family as far as I am concened.
    Sincerely Cookie
