Dr. Brian Cole and Steve Kashul talk with Spencer O�??Brien about the challenges professional athletes face during competition while managing rheumatoid arthritis. 

Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease that has a severe impact on the joints and can affect other parts of the body as well due to severe swelling. For a professional athlete a diagnosis like this can be physically and emotionally devastating. For O�??Brien it was finally an answer to why her body was failing her. She experienced low points, but like a great athlete she persevered, rebuilt herself and triumphed against the odds.
