A.S. Face 0737: Jessica Collins

Face 73720130928_144634 PhotoGrid_1380408776566My name is Jessica Collins. I live in Bend, Oregon. I am 22 years old and although I didn’t receive my diagnosis until I was 19,I have had AS since I was 8 years old. At times I struggle but it is up to me to maintain my quality of life and mobility. I am proud to become a face of AS and hope to continue the spread of awareness for this disease.
