Help Us Raise Awareness of AS

What is AS?

Ankylosing spondylitis (pronounced ank-kih-low-sing spon-dill-eye-tiss), or AS, is a form of arthritis that primarily affects the spine, although other joints can become involved. It causes inflammation of the spinal joints (vertebrae) that can lead to severe, chronic pain and discomfort.
In more advanced cases this inflammation can lead to ankylosis -- new bone formation in the spine -- causing sections of the spine to fuse in a fixed, immobile position.
AS can also cause inflammation, pain, and stiffness in other areas of the body such as the shoulders, hips, ribs, heels, and small joints of the hands and feet. Sometimes the eyes can become involved (known as iritis or uveitis), and -- rarely -- the lungs and heart can be affected.

Sheri and Amy both suffer from AS, but as you can clearly see they have not allowed AS to define who they they, in fact they are defining AS!

While AS is a form of arthritis, its symptoms are very different and can impact individuals of all ages,

Together, we can bring additional awareness about AS and it affects on those fighting the daily AS battle.

Please join Sheri and Amy and their supporting team of AS Warriors as we turn this years Jingle Bell Run BLUE as we Kick AS in the A$$!
