A.S. Face 1718: Rob Thompson
My name is Rob Thompson, I am 48 years old and have been fighting the disease since my late teens. I was diagnosed in 1998 after years of doctors being stumped. Ankylosing spondylitis is an ugly and cruel disease that shows no mercy. I work with my doctors to do what we can to fight it and I’m always up for trying new treatments no matter how far out there they are. I do my best to keep my spirits up and a good attitude. I think it helps me keep smiling through it all.
