There is no cure for arthritis – a painful and devastating disease - that is why I am participating in the Walk for Arthritis.
I have much to be thankful for over the past year. My father was crippled by arthritis and received a hip replacement last September. He is now walking without a cane! Not only that, he is taking long walks up and down the escarpment, which he hasn't been able to do in years. The pain management, surgery, and recovery program he followed were a result of research and treatments funded by the Arthritis Society and its generous donors.
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 solutions that will deliver better health outcomes for people affected by arthritis.
