Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
There are so many reasons why I do the Walk to Fight Arthritis. I grew up in a time when there were no treatments and most ended up in wheelchairs with severe deformities, like me. These days, rheumatoid arthritis is becoming an invisible illness because of new advances in treatment and progress is being made in research to find the cause of RA. That’s a good reason to walk.
I grew up in a time when little or no attention was paid to the emotional and mental health aspect of coping with arthritis. This year, The Arthritis Society launch an online course dealing with arthritis and mental health and well-being. That’s a good reason to walk.
In the last 13 years, I have twice come really close to death, but I’m still here. That’s an excellent reason to walk.
On June 4, 2017, I will be doing the 5K in the Walk to Fight Arthritis. With me will be all the wonderful friends and family who have joined the Your Life with RA team. We’ll be walking to raise funds for research and programs to support the 4.6 million Canadians who live with arthritis and their families and friends.
Thank you for supporting me!
