Your stories

Jane Hibbard Go Orange for AS

Jane's story

It took Jane 5 years to get diagnosed with axial SpA. During lockdown in 2020, she collapsed with severe back spasms, and could no longer walk, experiencing pain she had never even imagined possible. Being diagnosed by a rheumatologist she was recommended brought her to tears – relief that the pain she was in was not all in her head. Having started biologic treatment, Jane feels ready to get back to exercise. She and her friend, Lara, are going Orange for AS by meeting in Lee Valley Park to walk 8 miles to raise vital funds for NASS.

Penelope's story

“I think that the most important thing is to get out of the house (or bed!) no matter how sore my back is and get moving.” Penelope decided to challenge herself to swim the Thames Half Marathon (5km) this August and raise money for NASS and to raise awareness about axial spondyloarthritis.

The impact of your support

NASS is the only charity in the UK dedicated to supporting people with axial SpA. NASS doesn’t receive any statutory funding. We rely on your kindness and generosity, and other people like you, to help us transform the diagnosis, treatment and care of people with axial SpA and help more people live well with the condition sooner.

  • £10 can enable our Helpline team to respond to a call or email and provide guidance and advice to anyone affected by axial SpA.
  • £25 could help provide a pack of NASS guidebooks for a local axial SpA clinic.
  • £50 could help our team provide 1:1 welfare and benefits support for someone living with axial SpA.
  • £100 could help by contributing towards the cost of one of our weekly My AS My Life sessions to help people living with axial SpA manage their symptoms between hospital appointments.
  • £250 could help us run an online session to help up to 20 people learn how to manage symptoms of axial SpA, such as extreme pain, severe exhaustion and poor sleep.

We urgently need your support

Your support for NASS and people with axial SpA is more critical than ever:

  • As the NHS recovers from the pandemic, 67% of people with axial SpA are being left to cope with debilitating pain, exhaustion and fatigue alone.
  • The current economic climate has meant that we have seen a reduction in fundraising income.
  • With a cost-of-living crisis, more people than ever need support to claim life-changing disability benefits they are entitled to.

Thank you for your support for NASS and people with axial SpA.
