My name is Priscilla. I am a Kishwaukee Hospital volunteer. I have never felt so good. Having my knee replaced gave me a new lease on life. I was getting old with my knee, with the arthritis. I couldn't do the things I wanted to do at church. I couldn't do things with my grandkids. And I was really starting to feel all my age.

After I had my surgery with Dr. Jain he gave me a whole new life. I had my surgery on January 31st, and on May 13th I danced with my husband on our 50th wedding anniversary.

After my surgery, I became a volunteer for the Joint Care program. I love it. I go in every Monday and I talk to people who will be having surgery and I tell them what to expect before the surgery happens. I know what it feels like to have arthritis. I know what it feels like to have my knee replaced, and I also know what it feels like to walk out and know you have a brand new life starting all over again. I am active in my church. My husband says he has to take a number to see me, and that is fine with me. Life is too short. You've got to move. So now I move, because if I keep moving, illness can’t catch me or anything else.
