My name is Karissa Rhyne and after struggling through years of pain and multiple health issues I was finally given the diagnoses of ankylosing spondylitis this year. I am only 24 and still learning how to cope with the struggles of AS but I am happy to finally have a name and treatment plan. Though I am partially dependent on a wheel chair while out of the house I will never stop fighting! I am an animal rescuer, a daughter, a wife, a mother, and I am the face of ankylosing spondylitis!
