The fire of arthritis burns relentlessly for six million Canadians. If you or someone you love is living with arthritis, then you sadly know this all too well.

That’s why investing in arthritis research is so important. It’s the best chance we have to find new treatments, and one day, extinguish this disease for good.

Fueling life-changing research

Across Canada, researchers are making incredible advances to improve our understanding of arthritis, diagnose it earlier, and find more effective ways to treat it.

Dr. Sowmya ViswanathanWhen you make a gift, you’re supporting the work of researchers like Dr. Sowmya Viswanathan at University Health Network, who is exploring the missing link between gut bacteria and inflammation in osteoarthritis. Her work could shed light on how to use diet to fight inflammation and better manage this disease.

Thanks to donor support, this year Arthritis Society Canada is already fueling 98 innovative research projects across the country. Imagine how many more we’ll be able to fund if you take advantage of this limited-time gift matching opportunity!

Let’s not leave good ideas behind. The time is now to invest in arthritis research and transform the future of this disease. With your support – matched this month to double your impact – researchers can take their work even further, and one day, extinguish arthritis.

Stand with us this month and make double the impact as we spark new ideas and accelerate innovation.
