Yesterday was a big day for Ankylosing Spondylitis Awareness. Huw Irranca-Davies, a member of the British Parliament spoke about A.S.!
Please take a moment to listen to his eloquent description of his own story and the need for more research, better access to care, and the imperative to reduce the number of years it takes so many to receive a diagnosis.
Mr. Irranca-Davies also mentions our walk and asks others to participate! He will be joining us and walking to raise awareness. I’d say he’s done a great job of that before taking his first officially recorded step.

I only wish there had been more people sitting in the gallery to hear this speech. The video exists though so kudos to him for speaking up in the British Parliament about AS.
Vic, Yes, I’m sure Mr. Irranca-Davies wished so too but thankfully we have technology to transmit his message far & wide. – Jenna
He describes the disease very well. Shared this video on my facebook page. Thanks for posting Jenna.
