Volunteer locally, act globally

Editor's note: In honor of Women's History Month, we're bringing you stories of the women who shaped NPF's past.

Kathleen Gallant developed psoriatic arthritis in 1985 when she was 20. Her condition worsened until she went on disability in 1992. After starting Enbrel (etanercept) in 2004, she felt better – good enough, in fact, to get involved with NPF.
