I think just about all of my friends saw the posts about my mother passing away around Thanksgiving last year but most of you probably didn’t know that surgery on her bursa sac - related to her Rheumatoid Arthritis – was the first in a series of events that ultimately resulted in her passing.
I captained a team for the Arthritis Walk last year, which I'll be doing again this year in addition to now being a committee member for the walk. I am more committed than ever to do everything I can to try and eradicate this disease - or at least get us as close to it as we possibly can.
The Arthritis Walk is May 30th this year and it will have more of an event than it was last year. They'll have informational booths and family friendly events so it's more than just a walk and a fundraiser, it's educational as well.
Please join my team or donate funds...or you can also start a team of your own. Ultimately raising funds and awareness are the most important goals of this event.
