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 solutions that will deliver better health outcomes for people affected by arthritis.
In recent months I have gone through the challenging process of receiving 2 total knee replacements due to the effects of arthritis. In 2013 I also went through life changing joint reconstructions in both of my hands. Thanks to the wonders of modern medicine and research and through my personal journey of recovery I have set a goal for myself to finish the 5 kilometer Walk for Arthritis 5 months post-op from my last knee replacement.
Please join me in helping to support this important cause and to cheer me on as I attempt this walk with 2 new knees!!
Thank you so much!!
