Marguerite's Story

Patient using FREEDOM60®

These products are so user-friendly

“My name is Marguerite. I am 54 years old, a wife and mother of 2 active girls, ages 12 and 13. I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. I have gone to 5 different rheumatologists and other doctors in search for relief from the constant pain in every single joint in my body. I have found nothing that takes away all the pain, but I have found a few medications that help.

During my search, some of the therapies and infusions of strong medicines depleted my immune system. I caught pneumonia, was hospitalized, and almost died twice. I became disabled because the range-of-motion in my joints became limited, preventing me from moving very much. I also could not be around too many people because I could easily catch illnesses. This has been very difficult for me especially since my girls are young. They are involved in Girl Scouts and play in their school orchestra. I have missed many concerts and trips, Christmas parades, etc.

I starting seeing a new doctor a couple of years ago. Once I became strong enough, she started me on Hizentra, which is infused at home with little needles, into the subcutaneous tissue.

I use 3 HIgH-Flo needles and the Freedom60 system. These products are so user-friendly. The nurse trained me, so I can do the infusion according to our family schedule. I even took it on vacation with us this year. I feel much more ‘normal’! This medicine and the way it is administered allows me to accompany my daughters on many of their activities now.”
