A.S. Face 0504: Rachel Sauerbier

My name is Rachel Sauerbier and I  am 31 years old.  I currently live in Pullman, WA .  I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis when I was 27.  As most of the people here know, the diagnosis did bring piece of mind, but AS still continues to be a struggle.  I have moderate damage to my SI joints, my lower lumbar joints, my knuckles in my hands and the joints in my feet.  Though flare-ups can be painful and annoying, through a combination of infusion therapy and physical therapy, I am able to live life to its fullest.  AS can be a struggle, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence.
