Jodi McKee
No Longer Alone

Finding Hope

As a young woman who had just moved to New York City, Jodi McKee already felt nervous and alone. Then she was diagnosed with RA.

Jodi tried to find a support system—a person or group who would understand what she was going through, someone who could help her find some hope. But all she seemed to be able to turn up were stories of despair.

Then she met Kat Zimoulis and Sara Nash, two other young women with RA. Together, they formed a bond built on empathy and humor. Jodi and Kat talk about how that bond has changed their attitudes about the future.
