Day in the life of living with a rheumatic disease
An image speaks a 1000 words. Sharing your story is a powerful way of giving children with rheumatic diseases a voice. You can choose to remain anonymous by capturing images without showing your face. You can show medical aspects, share what inspires you or your everyday life: whatever you feel comfortable with.
Make a short video in your own language. If you don’t want to show your face, you’re welcome to film something else while telling us your story. We will compile all material and use it during the WORD 2023 campaign.

Submit a video for the ‘Day in the life of living with a rheumatic disease’ awareness campaign. All you need to do is voiceover a video of you going about your day and including things like your medications or doing physio, doing some exercise, what you do when you are having a bad day or in pain. For example maybe how you struggle to do school work or anything else that you could think of that would show people how hard it is to live with a rheumatic disease and how it impacts your day to day life. Submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
