I have to admit that I wouldn’t have made it this far without the encouragement and support of so many people. As time goes on, I will be talking about how my support team and some new friends have kept me going. I will fulfill my pledge and create my 365 days of apples and we will have all done it together. Since I live with AS, there have been some difficult times but I refuse to give up or give in and AS has taught me that this is the only way to live our lives no matter what challenges we face.
I’d like to thank the Spondylitis Association of America who helped me a few years back when I really needed a connection and a community and then again this year with their support of Art Apple A Day. Their dedication to fighting AS and related diseases and those of us living with AS is truly amazing – I feel hopeful and confident with them at the helm.
For any new visitors who found your way here from the SAA Holiday Card – I’d like to thank you as well. Your support of the SAA means more research for a cure as well as continued programs, seminars, and outreach. Please follow my progress as I work to raise awareness of Ankylosing Spondylitis with my Art Apple A Day. You can sign up to get the daily Apple emailed to you each morning – there is a sign up box in the upper right hand corner of my blog page. Also – apple ideas are welcome and truly appreciated! I’d love to hear from you – your comments and feedback keep me on my path 🙂
Until tomorrow and a big announcement……
