The Arthritis Society

http://www.arthritis.ca/givingtuesday

Make a statement by choosing The Arthritis Society as your GivingTuesday moment, and support research that will create a future without arthritis.

This summer a group of Canada’s brightest researchers showed us what is possible within the next 10 years:

  • Regenerative medicine: we are learning how to harness the body’s own incredible healing powers to repair joint damage from arthritis – and even prevent it from occurring

  • Personalized medicine: we will use genetics to target treatments to the individual for much greater effectiveness

  • Eliminating pain: we will be able to rewire the body’s overactive pain signals to reduce or eliminate excessive joint pain

It’s all within reach – but it can’t happen without your support.

About The Arthritis Society
The Arthritis Society has been setting lives in motion for over 65 years, and is dedicated to a vision of living well while creating a future without arthritis. Founded in British Columbia in 1948 by Mary Pack and Dr. Wallace Graham, The Society is Canada’s principal health charity providing education, programs and support to the over 4.6 million Canadians living with arthritis.

Since its founding, The Society has been the largest non-government funder of arthritis research in Canada, investing more than $190 million in projects that have led to breakthroughs in the diagnosis, treatment and care of people with arthritis. Investments also support the recruitment and development of rheumatology clinicians, investigators and other health professionals, expanding the capacity of arthritis-related expertise available to support Canadians. www.arthritis.ca
