  38. Ashley’s A.S. Kickers – Utah – Comment From Team Captain: Before I was diagnosed with A.S. at the end of 2013 I had never heard of this disease. I want to help raise awareness that women and children can have it too! I was finally diagnosed at 26 after seeing a team of doctors that finally listened to me. My rheumatologist informed me I have had the symptoms of it since I was 8 years old, a time when children generally weren’t diagnosed with it. I hope one day nobody as to wait 18+ years for an answer! The average of 10 years from onset to diagnosis is already too long! Thanks for helping me raise awareness.
