The INvisible Project: rheumatoid arthritis/rheumatoid disease (RA/RD) edition is now available in print and online.

The publication includes profiles of 10 people living with RA/RD, showing the reality of life with pain, and why people with RA/RD need and deserve more help, treatment options, and research. The goal is to create public awareness and offer hope to other pain warriors living with RA/RD.

Mariah Leach, who blogs at www.fromthispointforward.com, is one of the individuals featured. She inspires countless individuals living with RA/RD, helping them realize their disease does not have to define their life.

“I am not comfortable letting RA make my life decisions for me,” says Leach in her profile. “I still want the decision to be mine. Having RA may change the way I have to live or how I will achieve my goals, but it won’t make reaching my dreams impossible. I will still go after what I want.”
