Watch: Arthur's CIDP Story

Arthur is stepping forward for those also living with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP).


Arthur wants the world to know his story and his story is one of resilience.

Arthur is living with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, better known as CIDP. It’s a rare autoimmune condition that can leave those living with it with weakness in their arms and legs and can affect their physical abilities, including walking.

After finding the right treatment, Arthur is effectively managing his symptoms and getting back to some of the activities he enjoys. With symptoms that aren’t always readily apparent, Arthur says CIDP can be an “invisible illness.” That’s why he’s taking time to stand up for his fellow patients as an advocate – and making sure everyone knows what they’re overcoming every day.
