25 years with arthritis

By uclahealth

“I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis when I was 14 years old,” says Carly Panchura, now 39 and an advocate for arthritis research. “I’ve had some pretty significant surgeries. And it’s a balance: if you do too much, it hurts. If you do too little, you’re also going to have problems. I’m an advocate for the Arthritis Foundation. There are only like 11 states with pediatric rheumatologists, and I can’t even imagine if I didn’t have the treatments when I was young. A lot of people don’t know that arthritis is the nation’s No. 1 cause of disability. There are over 50 million Americans who have arthritis or arthritis-related diseases, including 300,000 children. UCLA does a lot of life-saving research, and I’d like to see them continue the work they’re doing.”
