Erinn McQueen
As an undergraduate at Laurier University, Erinn played varsity soccer - reveling in the competition and athleticism. Things changed one summer, however, when she started to feel fatigued and began experiencing joint pain, particularly after game days. During training camp, it became clear that there was a problem. Her morning stiffness - another new development - would last for hours, and by the early fall she had to stop playing. Soon after, she was diagnosed with RA. She was just 21 years old. The onset of the disease was aggressive.
