Charis H. (California)

“I grew up with the painful symptoms of an autoimmune disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), but was not diagnosed until 2013. Uninsured, I fought my way through the health care delivery system to find a primary care physician and Rheumatologist to get the treatment I needed. I not only have to fight this painful disease, but I have to fight to access the care and medicines I need on a daily basis. It shouldn’t be this difficult, especially when my disease is so painful.”
