Support Arthritis Awareness







May is Arthritis Awareness Month 

Arthritis is a serious, painful and debilitating disease that is often misunderstood.
It's the leading cause of disability.  It affects adults and children.  
Arthritis destroys joints, bones, and other connective tissues.
You know why I know, I am one of the faces of arthritis.  

I was diagnosed a few years ago.  

I have osteoarthritis in both my knees and in my hips.  
I experience stiffness, swelling, and pain daily.  
I am no longer able to stand or walk for long periods of time.  
It has affected my ability to be more active.  But with pain management I am still able to live a better life.

I have made the pledge to live better with arthritis and raise awareness, starting today.  

Take the Pledge Now!

Get more facts now!
