Having four back surgeries between 2001 and 2011 along with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and retinal atrophy, Tanya found herself unable to work like she once could.


Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that mistakenly attacks the joints. This misguided attack from the immune system causes inflammation in the joints that results in thickening and swelling causing pain.


Not only was Tanya aching in pain, but her eye sight began declining as well from her prescribed medication. “I found out I had RA in 2012 and it was manageable at the time, but then it got worse and worse. Unfortunately, my medications had a bad affect on my eyes. My eye sight was getting bad and I couldn’t really see well.”


Getting help


Tanya’s health and overall wellness was declining. Tanya’s uncle had worked with Balin Law in the past, so when he heard about her conditions, he encouraged her to contact Balin Law.
