Cassie & Friends Family Day – September 16!

September 1, 2017

The Arthritis Society is very pleased to tell you about Cassie & Friends’ upcoming Family Day!  This is a fun and informative event for families living with Juvenile Arthritis and other rheumatic conditions.  It provides a wonderful opportunity for families from around the province to connect and create relationships, and The Arthritis Society is happy to provide travel bursaries to help families from outside the Lower Mainland attend.

Taking place on September 16 in Burnaby, BC, this will be their 9th annual Family Day conference.  It is a FREE event to all families, and includes breakfast, lunch, snacks and all kids' activities.

At the conference, people will be able to learn more about the latest treatments and research, and gain new strategies to cope with daily activities like school and sports.  Social issues like anxiety and depression will also be addressed.

It will be an adventure-filled day with supervised recreational programming for kids of all ages, and siblings are encouraged to join in the fun and to share how JIA has affected their lives too.  Register soon, as this popular event fills up early!  To find out more or register, please visit:
