Ankylosing spondylitis is an inflammatory disease that, over time, can cause some of the small bones in your spine (vertebrae) to fuse. This fusing makes the spine less flexible and can result in a hunched-forward posture. If ribs are affected, it can be difficult to breathe deeply.
I am Nate Justine M. Florendo, 19 years old from the Philippines. I am diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis (A.S.) last March 2021. I've been in pain since I was 17 years old. AS doesn't have a cure, but I can get into remission by injecting biologics, which costs around 60,000 php a single shot. I need to take this for 12 months straight. We cannot afford this amount of money monthly. I wont be able to go to college without your help.
I just want to make the pain go away. I want to do the things that I could atleast do. I am an Artist, and sitting too long makes the pain worse. You can check my portfolio here
Thank you for your help, God bless you all!
