Ailsa and Anna

Thanks for sharing your family story in this way.

I think it will be very helpful in helping us to communicate to our families and friends about this life changing and complex disease.

All the best

Thank you Ailsa and Anna. Really helpful video, so important to communicate our feelings about RA though sometimes very difficult - as Ailsa rightly says, we don't want the disease to define us, which is difficult when it's been a part of your life for 45:years! xx
