You may not know, but I have a chronic, incurable, autoimmune disease called Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was diagnosed at age 17 with this devastating and painful disease. I have struggled with this disease for years but am hopeful that one day a cure will be found for all types of arthritis.
I am again taking part in the Walk for Arthritis to raise funds to find a cure for all the people affected by this disease.
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!
If you know of anyone who would like to donate to this cause, please forward them this page.
Thank you for your support!
