When you first meet Tamara Komuniecki you see a friendly, smiling woman.
When you talk to her, you learn that she has made an amazing life for herself as a successful broadcast journalist, an entrepreneur, owner of Delish General Store, and as a mother.
What you don’t see is the lifetime of pain she has continued to experience since childhood. She suffers from a disease that is invisible.
Komuniecki was diagnosed with severe Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) at age 6. Through chronic pain, four joint replacements and many other Arthritis-related surgeries and debilitating inflammatory attacks, Komuniecki has been a fantastic role model for not letting the disease slow her down.
At this time, during Arthritis Awareness month, Komuniecki is stepping forward to ask others to take action in support of advances in education and care for those affected by the disease. To learn more and donate visit www.arthritis.ca or jointhealth.org.
