Overview

More than a million Americans suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. The numbers of deaths from this disease continues to climb each year. Late diagnosis and treatment for arthritis related, cervical spine deterioration, is one reason for some of these deaths. Celia Veno, a Bucks County retired woman and mother was one of those fatalities.

Celia Veno, a woman in her 70’s, began experiencing mysterious migraine-like headaches and atrophy. After her general doctor and neurologist failed to determine the cause of these symptoms, a new rheumatologist was called upon. He immediately diagnosed from a previous cervical spine x-ray that she had advanced spinal cord syndrome. Unfortunately, the findings came critically late. She died two months later.

Eighty-six percent of people with rheumatoid arthritis have the disease in their neck (cervical spine). “Death by Rheumatoid Arthritis”, lists signs and symptoms of spinal instability, due to advancement of the disease.

Carla Jones is dedicated to bringing awareness to the undisputed fact, that anyone can die from complications related to rheumatoid arthritis, and to promote early detection of cervical collar damage, for those with the disease.

    Check It Out!

    Granted, this is a worse case scenario and happened because RA was not diagnosed in time, still the book is well done. A glowing tribute to her mother.
