    RA Guy,

    This was a helpful video on RA and the “My Day for RA” campaign. I have a friend on twitter who has RA and I will have to give her the link to your blog in case she hasn’t already seen it.

    I was there – Samantha was lovely, and one of many with really inspiring stories! It was a very enjoyable event … I hope that when they eventually produce the video that we all went out there to participate in, it’s useful. I think it should be.

    Hola Samantha, yo estuve a llí. Heres hermosa, tanto por fuera como por dentro ( tengo la habilidad de ver la hermosura, digamos: espiritual) y, tú, la tienes sin lugar a dudas. He visto en tu interior a “Jesús”, también lo llevas en tú corazón, como yo lo llevo.

    También, padezco desde hace muchísimos años “artritis Reumatoidea”.

    Soy el Tenor: Javier Bovea, ganador de la 1ª Edición del programa-televisivo: ” TÚ SÍ QUE VALES “, producido por ” GESTMUSIC”, para “TELECINCO”, y, creo, que os canté antes y después de la cena algunas arias de ópera, alguna napolitana y canciones varias, espero que disfrutaras mucho en unión de tod@s nuestr@s compañer@s.

    Un besazo y un abrazo muy fuerte y, por favor, no pierdas nunca la “Fé”, en tí misma, en tu familia y en ” Jesús”.

    Javier Bovea ( Tenor: Spinto-Dramático )
