Team Rheummates is back again for our second year participating in the Walk to Fight Arthritis and we have expanded our team! We are especially excited because we have been chosen to be the Walk Ambassador Family for 2018! We have a huge responsibility this year! Last year I became a Walk Star from raising over $1000. My goal is to beat that amount, but we can't do it without your help.
We want to raise awareness that arthritis does not just affect older adults, but it also affects children and younger adults just like my daughter Cyerra. We are walking for her and we are also walking for my mother who was just diagosed of Polymyalgia Rheumatica in December of 2017. We are walking for the 6 million Canadians who are affected by arthritis.
Please take the time and read my personal page. Last year, I wrote about Cyerra's journey with RA and this year I want to update all of you on her health and everything she has been up to.
Please support the Arthritis Society and our team! We also welcome anyone who would like to join our team!!
We are walking because there is no cure for arthritis – a painful and devastating 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 solutions that will deliver better health outcomes for people affected by arthritis.
