For 12 years now Dominic has suffered from Juvenile Dermatomyositis which falls under the umbrella of arthritis. He is doing well at this time but, that could change in a heartbeat.
Thanks to the arthritis Society Dominic has been able to go to camp for a week the past 3 years. He gets to have fun and spend time with other kids who have arthritis as well. It gives him the chance to know he is not alone in this fight.
As we both fight diseases that fall under the arthritis umbrella this walk is important to us. Please help us raise money for research and hopefully one day a cure. Every penny helps!!
There is no cure for arthritis – a painful and devastating disease - that is why I am participating in the Walk for Arthritis.
Today, more than 6 million Canadians are affected by arthritis. These numbers are only going to increase. By 2035, 1 in 4 Canadians will have arthritis. That means you or your wife, your mother or your brother just may have arthritis.
As the prevalence of arthritis increases, so does the demand for investment into cutting-edge research, proactive advocacy and innovative information and support that will deliver better health outcomes for people affected by arthritis.
This year the Walk for Arthritis is celebrating its 10th year - help make this the best year ever by joining the Walk for Arthritis community and supporting this important cause!
Thank you so much,
