Please support the Arthritis Society and our team!
We are campaigning because there is no cure for arthritis, a painful and devastating disease.
It can strike at any age, children who can't play, young adults who can't work or who work in pain, older adults who can't enjoy an active lifestyle. 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 spouse, your mother or your brother, or your child or your grandchild 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. These investments are making a difference -- better understanding, earlier diagnosis, more effective medications, better joint replacements -- but there is much more to be done!
