RA Awareness Week 2017

RA Awareness Week 2017 will focus on ‘Invisible Illness’ and what goes on ‘Behind the Smile’.

People who break their arm or experience an injury are obviously in bad shape but we can see their injury and understand their limitations. But for the millions of people who are living with an invisible illness such as rheumatoid arthritis, explaining what's wrong is another side effect of the condition. Not only do they have to put up with challenging, often painful, and sometimes debilitating conditions every day, but on top of that, they may have to face scepticism from people - friends, family, and co-workers, as well as strangers who don't understand what's wrong.
