A.S. Face 1630: Janey

Face 1630

My name is Janey, a mum to 3 beautiful teenage boys. I am married to John for 20 years & was recently diagnosed with AS in April, suffering fused discs & SI joints & peripheral joint pain. AS is in my maternal side of family so I am very familiar with this disease & after watching my gentle Grandfather suffer for many years I was terrified of what was ahead of me. Imagine my surprise at the advancement of treatment in 20 years…. Be it physical therapy to biologic & the advanced technology in research… A far cry from eating Voltarol & get on with it attitude. I am very hopeful that we can find a cure to end this cursed disease & educate people in the interim through a host of media forums.
