Going the distance – Raj Mahapatra on where he found the strength to overcome AS and keep setting himself new challenges

For World AS Day 2018 Raj Mahapatra, ASIF Trustee, spent a couple of days making a video with Novartis for This AS Life

Living with Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), many of us are happy when we can walk comfortably, let alone run. For Raj Mahapatra, AS patient, ASIF Executive Committee Member and Chairman of the National Ankylosing Spondylitis Society (NASS), letting his condition rule his life was simply not an option.

With determination, clear goals and the help of his friends and family, Raj went the extra mile – literally – to defy his AS and achieve his exercise, work and life objectives. Watch now and find out how. Choose Your AS Future!

The YouTube video has subtitles available in Chinese, French, English, German, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. Click on the YouTube settings cog to select.
