Join the Without Wings community
Without Wings, is the Manx charity specifically for local people living with Autoimmune Arthritis.
Autoimmune Arthritis includes: rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, juvenile arthritis and lupus. Autoimmune Arthritis are chronic conditions whereby the body's immune system not only progressively attacks the linings of the joints, but also many other systems in the body. These can include the eyes, skin and organs.
Autoimmune Arthritis can affect anyone of any age, and usually requires a lifetime of escalating and aggressive medical intervention.
What does Without Wings hope to achieve?
Through our social media and fundraising efforts, Without Wings aims to:
1. Raise awareness and challenge misperceptions of these often misunderstood illnesses
2. Provide useful information for sufferers in a positive and inspirational manner
3. Provide financial support via short term funding for compassionate services when sufferers are most 'without wings,' or freedom - either physically, or emotionally.
