      Kelly, congratulations on your award! You are so deserving – all the time and energy you pour into your work and research, time spent away from your family and the pain you deal with daily – but thank you most of all for a meeting place for the RA Warriors battling this disease to come together in support of one another – to learn and educate others – and just to know they are safe among friends that care and actually “get it”.
