A.S. Face 1683: Tonia Dunn


I’m not the typical face of AS. I’m one of many, people of color(black) person who has AS. I want people to see us as the faces that are also affected by AS.

  1. Dear Tonia,
    Thank you so much for sharing your story with us.
    Sincerely Cookie

  2. Thank you so much for posting this! I sometimes wonder if the 15 year delay in my diagnosis is in part because I am a woman and I am black. One doctor kept asking about “my heritage”, suggesting it didn’t seem possible that I could have AS. Very frustrating.
