Death from Rheumatoid Arthritis

Coming June 1, 2010

Laurel, MD—May 14, 2010—By 2030, an estimated 67 million Americans ages 18 years or older are projected to have doctor-diagnosed arthritis. Three categories of AORC account for almost 80% of deaths: 22% of them are attributed to Rheumatoid Arthritis. Echelon Press, LLC announced today that Allentown, PA author Carla Jones’s eBook “Death from Rheumatoid Arthritis” will be available for sale June 1, 2010. With very personal ties to this disease, Ms. Jones will be donating a portion of her royalties to the Arthritis Foundation. 

For twelve years Jones worked in the Pharmacy industry with another four years in Mental Health. Ms. Jones spent part of this time nursing her mother, who ultimately died from complications of Rheumatoid Arthritis. After her mother’s death, she spent two years researching “Death from Rheumatoid Arthritis” 

“I hope this eBook will send a message to those afflicted with this incurable disease, to their caregivers and to the general public, warning them of the potential deadly complications associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis,” says Jones. “This disease is greatly underestimated in its power to devastate.” 

Echelon Press hopes this eBook will offer useful information and comfort to others who face this affliction or who deal with the disease in their loved ones. “Every disease is horrible, but so many people don’t realize that this can kill, and does.” 

Author Carla Jones is a fresh voice at Echelon Press. Her upcoming, non-fiction eBook, “Death from Rheumatoid Arthritis,” chronicles her mother’s medical and personal experience fighting the disease. After many years living with RA, her mother manifested many unusual physical symptoms. Only one specialist was able to correctly diagnose her with spinal cord syndrome, due to her eroded cervical spine. Sadly, when the diagnosis was revealed, corrective surgery was not a survivable option. Carla Jones attended Southeastern College and Pinebrook Jr. College.  Jones’s stories have appeared in the Morning Call, and numerous other publications.
