Happy Thanksgiving dear SAA forum community!

We have such immense gratitude for our members and friends, for all of you who have made THIS spondylitis community a place of connectedness and hope.

To our veteran posters - Thank You for all of the support you've offered, the countless questions you've answered, and the newcomers you've so warmly welcomed through the years. You are the heart and soul of this board, and make a difference every single day. Thank You!

To our newer posters - Welcome and Thank You for joining this unique community, for keeping it young and vibrant, and for the contributions you have already, and will continue to make here!

Our thanks also to all those who have volunteered to participate in medical research, for all who have Joined the Spondylitis Association of America and contributed to the quest for the cure, and for the many thousands of people who have taken a leadership role in raising awareness for our COMMON yet, still all too unknown form of arthritis. We've come a long way, but have so much yet left to do.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Spondylitis Association of America!!

What are You thankful for this Holiday Season?

Happy Thanksgiving to you Elin, and all the wonderful staffers at SAA! The information, support, and encouragement that SAA provides means so much to us as we make our spondy journey.

I am thankful for an effective treatment plan, a supportive family, and a granddaughter due next week!

Congratulations SouthernMoss!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I’m very grateful for the SAA forums community. This continues to be the most thoughtful, supportive and experienced place I’ve ever seen online for spondylitis. It’s nice to know “you’ve got my back”.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Thank you Elin and all of SAA for your continued support of all of us who are continually searching for help, answers, and understanding.

To my fellow spondies, thank you all so much for being there for me and for each other as we go through this journey. It's been a blessing to have you all here to lean on when I'm perplexed, frustrated, happy, or whatever roller coaster of emotion I'm on at the moment. LOL.

I am so thankful for each one of you.
