Represent RA: Are You an Everyday Health Hero?

  • The other day, I came across an interesting notice from ABC. There are plans to create a reality show about an Everyday Health Hero that will bring attention not just to the person themselves, but also to a cause they identify with or support. We've just come out of Arthritis Awareness Month and the message we kept coming across was twofold. First, to create awareness about rheumatoid arthritis and reduce the stigma of living with it. Second, to raise money for research that can continue to bring revolutionary treatments for this chronic illness. This show seems like it might be an excellent chance to do both.
