I was diagnosed after one year of seeking medical attention for pain, swelling and stiffness. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis. My job is incredibly hands on and demands my mind and body. Adapting has been difficult, both personally and professionally, but thanks to family, friends and The Arthritis Society, I'm getting the support I need to thrive. If you know me, you know I go balls to the wall. I need to get involved. This is the first of many events!
Thanks to donations to events like this, our reach is bigger and bigger.
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!
