Video: Natalie Decker Reveals That She Suffers From Rheumatoid Arthritis

On Sunday, NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series competitor Natalie Decker released a video on her social media channels where she told a part of her life, that we were all unaware of — she suffers from Rheumatoid Arthritis.

According to the video, Decker was diagnosed with the condition at the age of two, and along her path to where she is now, Decker has had doctors explaining that show would be unable to do certain things with her medical condition.

Decker has proved the doctors wrong as she now drives the No. 54 truck for DGR-Crosley in the NGOTS.

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder which affects the joints, including the joints in hands and feet.

While Decker has had a trying rookie campaign in the Series, she does have a best finish of 13th, which came at Las Vegas in the spring.
