There is no cure for arthritis – a painful and devastating disease - I suffer from both Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis which 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. The support and referrals provided by the Canadian Arthritis Society have been invaluable to me since my diagnosis, almost 2 years ago. It is scary not knowing answers and not knowing where to turn - they have always been there for me!
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!
