A.S. Face 1327: Lori Borrelli

Face 1327

My name is Lori Borrelli and I have A.S.and Rheumatoid Arthritis.


I believe in love, humor and compassion in dealing with my autoimmune diseases. I think naps are as important as any medication and I am grateful for the A.S. Community.


I first started having symptoms at age 14 but was not formally diagnosed until 32, well after I fractured two vertebrae doing nothing exciting but turning rapidly to the side.


My Dad had A.S. and unfortunately, he never received treatment during any if his 87 years. He never complained, instead, just silently became the Tin Man.


I thank you Cookie, for giving us a face and a voice ~ I am a Warrior!
