About Don Markham, Dallas's Support Group Leader

I was diagnosed formally with AS in 2014. After having issues with my hips, back, and knees for two decades, I had my first major flare in 2014 that lead to my ankylosing spondylitis diagnosis. Since my diagnosis I have embarked on a journey in fitness and diet to help along with my biological medication to fight the disease. I have since gone on to compete in power lifting and now body building to help raise awareness of the struggle others face with this disease. I try to advocate any chance I can. I am hoping to bring a positive attitude and motivation to the group meetings as well as spread information and awareness to other warriors fighting spondylitis.

Want to Start a New Support Group?

Starting a spondylitis support group can be a fulfilling and rewarding challenge. The knowledgeable volunteers who lead SAA-Sponsored Spondylitis Educational Support Groups play a vital role by providing a forum for those with spondylitis to connect and offer support. Interested in taking on this role?
