I was diagnosed when I was 34 years old and am now 70 so I have had RA for 36 years.

I am interested in helping out in any way I can and that is why I am interested in being a peer support partner.

I am originally from Greece, and have been blessed with an incredibly supportive husband, sister-in-law, and two daughters. I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren.
