Meet Rena

Fibromyalgia

At only 38 years old, Rena wasn’t ready to live the rest of her life in constant pain. She knew that the treatment plan she was on would never give her the opportunity to do the things she loved most. She got in touch with Grand Rounds to help her find a local rheumatologist in her hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee. Within a matter of weeks, Rena was given a new diagnosis and treatment plan—and a new lease on life.


“I can actually live my life and be happy and do everything.”
