Shannon Stratton

Rare Disease Health Leader Shannon Stratton Shannon Stratton is an artist and research administrator who was born with X-Linked Hypophosphatemia and diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at 18. Instead of letting illness define her, Shannon chose to redefine what it meant to live with it. She has become a passionate advocate and has worked with numerous non-profits in the Boston area on disability advocacy.

Shannon believes that laughter is great medicine; one of her mottos is “just to keep from crying, I laugh”. She uses humor and levity to share her story about living with XLH and Rheumatoid Arthritis in a light and relatable way. She hopes that her willingness to be vulnerable, open and transparent inspires people to confront their own adversities with courage.
