Peer Support Partner – John


Age at diagnosis?

I was diagnosed with RA when I was 32 years old.

Why I chose to be a Peer Support Partner

 I was attracted to becoming a Peer Support Partner with the hope of being able to help others. I have had the disease for many years and was able to deal with many ups and downs with my brother who was also diagnosed with the disease 9 years after I was. My experience working with people going through trauma as a police detective has prepared me.

A little about me

I am retired and enjoy sailing, woodworking, and photography.
