MATHOCHISM

RA DIARIES

This series takes a frank look at Whitney’s ongoing fight with rheumatoid arthritis. Diagnosed while still in elementary school, Whitney has nonetheless managed to live a mostly normal life, getting an education, getting married, even managing to earn a private pilot license, which made Arthritis Today name her a “Hero Among Us” in the mid-’90s.
