Hi everyone, my name is Trish Peters!
Arthritis kind of hit me like a truck at the age of 11. But it has taught me so much. I spent a lot of my childhood playing sports and when I was diagnosed it was hard for me to comprehend that. So, I played rugby instead. For 6 years, I tolerated aches and pains from arthritis and a very aggressive sport. But this sport is the reason that I have become so resilient with arthritis. Now, that I am in university studying finance, my goal has become to be a role model for kids with and without arthritis. I have done TV shows like @futureprospects which gave me a chance to speak about the benefits and the negatives of social media. With Cassie and Friends I am able to show kids that even with arthritis, we can do anything we want. It shouldn’t stop us from doing anything. I was lucky to be raised in a supportive family where I was taught that I could do anything I wanted to succeed at and now I get to see the effects of that in what I do.
I founded a podcast called Take a Pain Check with my fellow TAG Leader Natasha Trehan in order to raise awareness for kids with arthritis. We share stories and resources so that families are able to find resources at their fingertips and so they don't feel alone in their search.
I am raising money so that Cassie and Friends can reach out to even more kids and support them and their parents through this journey.
Thanks for all your support!
