This is Eleanor Farr, an NRAS Ambassador and a member of our Young Voices Panel. Eleanor was diagnosed with RA when she was 19 years old.
“Thanks to NRAS I now have an arthritis family. A group of people who are there for me, give me information and advice and who never fail to support me. Knowing that I am not alone in this has kept me going through some difficult and testing times” - Eleanor.
