Meet our Founder:
When Randi was 10 years old, she noticed that her joints were giving her some abnormal pains. At the time, she was in gymnastics; therefore, her doctors thought Randi was just experiencing tendonitis from being in a high impact sport. After having two injuries back to back that took longer than the average person to heal, Randi walked away from gymnastics.
At 15 years old, Randi started to play basketball, and she told her mom that her fingers felt like they were being “jammed” without actually jamming them on a basketball. Once Randi could no longer turn her wrist to open a door knob, her mom decided to start working to find out what was actually wrong with Randi’s joints.
Randi was officially diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at 16 years old. Her journey with RA has had its ups and downs, and that sparked Randi to share her story on Instagram and YouTube as RA Warrior Randi.
Since being diagnosed, Randi has developed a passion to advocate for the autoimmune and chronic illness community. She decided to start this company to further spread awareness about the invisible battles that people face every single day. She hopes that starting Warrior Union will encourage others to share their stories and truly realize how strong they are to face battles that others do not know about.
