Peer Support Partner – MaryT


Age at diagnosis?

Diagnosed in 2006 – Three years ago

Initially I was diagnosed with  carpel tunnel syndrome, and it wasn’t until three years ago at age 58 that my doctors determined that I had RA.

Why I chose to be a Peer Support Partner?

 I joined the Peer Support program in hopes of helping another RA patient at whatever level I can.

A little bit about me.

I am interested in politics and current affairs.  My hobbies are needlepoint, cooking, and traveling, especially to Florida, England and France.
