My Story

Am Leonida from Kenya, aged 23 with one kid, and l have been suffering since when l was 13-years old.

l have skin rashes which don't go away and joint inflammation that occurs every year and is really painful. Sometimes l can't walk for periods as long as almost 3-months, nor hold anything with my arms.

My Motivation and Inspiration

No matter the pain am still encouraging myself to go on
