September is Arthritis Awareness Month! Join the Arthritis Society as we raise $1 million to one day extinguish the fire of arthritis for good.
Will you donate today? Help us raise $1 million to provide support to Canadians living with the fire of arthritis.
If you or someone you love lives with the fire of arthritis, then you know it’s not “just” arthritis. Arthritis prevents 6 million Canadians from living life to the fullest, a life without pain. People like Sharmila, a single parent and entrepreneur.
Living with the intense fire of rheumatoid arthritis was devastating for Sharmila at first, but support from her family and education resources from the Arthritis Society empowered her to find solutions to live well.
“In hindsight, I wish I had used the Arthritis Society’s resources earlier. My journey has taught me so much. I know how to make the cards I’m dealt work for me now.”
Thanks to generous supporters, the Arthritis Society can provide a wide range of resources designed in collaboration with and for people, like Sharmila, directly impacted by arthritis. And we’ve made a lot of progress in arthritis treatment since the Arthritis Society was founded in 1948.
But what we know about arthritis right now can only take us so far. More research, advocacy and support programs are needed.
Help fight the fire of arthritis by donating to the Arthritis Society. We’ll send your generous donation to the frontlines of research and support programs as we work to one day extinguish arthritis.
