60-Second Guide To RA
Hi! This is me, Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy. I am a superhero who lives with rheumatoid arthritis.

Show Us Your Hands!
An Autoimmune Arthritis Community Collage Project. Autoimmune arthritis hands are a visible sign of the enormous strength of people who experience so much pain, that their hands are literally being pulled out of shape. We are proud of our hands. They have endured a lot, and they will continue to endure even more. We will never be ashamed of our hands, no matter what they look like!
