Your Stories


Each person affected by JSpA has their own unique story. We at SAA believe that each and every story can be a source of inspiration, empowerment, and validation. Our thanks to all of our JSpA warriors who have shared their stories below! Please share YOUR unique story to inspire and support others living with JSpA.
Want to add your own story?

We are constantly looking for those who wish to make an impact on their community, family, and friends. Your story can be a source of inspiration for others. We look forward to being able to help share your story with the world!

The first ten individuals to submit a story will receive a free SAA popsocket!

Compose Your Story

A short 2-3 paragraphs are all we need, (but more is ok as well!) describing how/when you were diagnosed with JSpA, as well as a summary of your life and where JSpA has taken you over the years, through the struggles and through the great times living with this disease.

Take A Picture

We would love a picture of you to give each story a face. For anyone who is under 18 we need parental consent for any pictures. Please fill out a photo release here.
