Revealing the many Faces of Arthritis

Arthritis Awareness Month - 75 yearsArthritis has many faces. This incurable disease scorches no two lives the same way.  

This September, for Arthritis Awareness Month, we are running a national campaign called Faces of Arthritis. To help bust myths and misconceptions, we will share real stories of Canadians from coast-to-coast living with the agony of arthritis.

You can watch for and help share #FacesOfArthritis stories on social media.


Share your story with us

Are you or someone you love living with arthritis? Arthritis Society Canada is curating a powerful video montage to share the real agony of the disease – the losses, the missed moments, the mental, physical and emotional toll. We invite you to share a brief 10-second video that encapsulates your experience with arthritis. Maybe it’s a snippet of your daily routine, an emotional moment or a symbol of your challenge, help us to help others understand the real impact of arthritis through powerful images.

Here are just some examples of the type of imagery we are looking for within the videos:
