Dear Family & Friends:
As you know 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 or your children may carry the disease and be affected at the prime of their life. Arthritis is a multi-faceted disease that can go undiagnosed for years leading the sufferer to experience more joint, bone and inflamatory damage of other organs. This can be slowed or stopped by a diagnosis and specific medications. Getting these expensive medications can be difficult but excellent Arthritis Clinics, Rheumetologists, nurses & pharmacists can make all the difference in helping people achieve some relief.
As the prevalence of arthritis increases, so does the demand for investment into cutting-edge research, proactive advocacy, innovative support & education that will deliver better health outcomes for people affected by arthritis.
This year the Walk for Arthritis is celebrating its 10th year-please help make this the best year ever by joining the Walk for Arthritis community and supporting this important cause! I hope to raise $250.00 so any amount you could sponsor me for would be very appreciated. If you would like a receipt for income tax purposes the minimum donation required is $25.00.
Also I would love to invite you to come and support our groups on Walk Day Saturday June 2nd, 2019. Helping Canadians with Arthritis lead active & healthier lives, reducing the pain and suffering for as long as possible with access to treatments, genetic specific medications, education & emotional support is why I want to participate, raise money, awareness, understanding, & meet others who want to help!
Thank you in advance for your support,
