Petition Background

Ankylosing Spondylitis(A.S.) is an auto-immune arthritis that affects 1.7 million people in the United States of America and over 33 million people in the world. This disease needs to be better understood by the government, healthcare professionals and general public. There is currently not a cure for A.S., but through more government funded research studies and education, the people who it affects and their families can enjoy more comfortable lives. Please visit www.helgiolafson.org to contact the leader of this petition.

The Helgi Olafson Foundation is a non profit organization.

My name is Helgi Olafson and I have Ankylosing Spondylitis. I am a health activist, educating and inspiring people around the world to live healthier lives and take control of this disease through my involvement in endurance sports.
