I’m an Ambassador!

Look who’s posting on a Saturday? Well this is for good reason. I am so excited to announce that I am joining the formidable forces of Cure Arthritis Ambassadors!

Cure Arthritis Ambassadore

Here is an excerpt from the wonderful article they wrote:

“The Arthritis National Research Foundation’s Cure Arthritis Ambassadors roster continues to grow and we are pleased to welcome Kate Mitchell to the team. Kate, creator the blog, Kate The Almost Great, is a writer and former teacher who has been battling arthritis symptoms since 2001. Kate plans to use the influence from her blog, social media accounts, and self-published book Aureole, to spread the message that research is the key to finding a cure for arthritis. 
Though she was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis back in 2010, Kate has since been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. With 56 joints affected by arthritis and eight fibromyalgia points, her disease is progressing. The cartilage under her knee has even come apart from her kneecap, which makes dislocating it all the more frequent, further worsening her condition. Despite her pain, Kate’s condition is motivating her to take action by spreading awareness.”

As a part of my rule as an ambassador, I am launching a new series here on the blog. I want to use my platform to provide a voice for other sufferers of arthritis and its related diseases and conditions. This means that I will be posting weekly or monthly (haven’t decided yet) the story of another person who has this condition.

If you would like to participate, fill out this form! You don’t have to have a blog to do it. This way I can use my platform to share other people’s stories, especially those who don’t have a platform but want to share what’s going on with them. Hopefully this will raise more awareness, but it will also provide me with more information on the realities of living with arthritis because it can be a wide spectrum.

I’m so excited to continue my journey of activism and to be able to take this next step so I can better help you. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask, either in a comment here on by emailing me.
