Glenn Helverson has a job that’s all about speed.
For most of the last 25 years he’s been a driver with the Central Jackson County Fire Protection District. But he’s been slowed down at times by a health issue that appeared at an early age.
“I think I first noticed signs of arthritis when I was eighteen,” Helverson says.
Today his rheumatoid arthritis pain is kept at bay with a new-generation injectable drug called Cimzia.
“Without the medications I’ve had, I probably would’ve already been retired with disability,” he says.
