Donate today to ease the pain for people living with arthritis

The start of a new year brings optimism and excitement. At Arthritis Society Canada, we’re channeling this energy into helping the six million people in Canada living with arthritis.

To make more progress this year than ever before, we need donors to join us. Together, we can support advocacy efforts so that governments prioritize arthritis care. We can support programs that help people manage their arthritis pain and symptoms. And we can support researchers across the country who are answering fundamental questions about the disease and discovering new and more effective treatments.

Increasing the odds of success

Dr. Guangju ZhaiOne such researcher is Dr. Guangju Zhai. His research explores whether an amino acid supplement could promote successful joint replacement surgeries for people living with osteoarthritis, the most common form of the disease. This holds great potential for patients who need such procedures and would reduce the strain on our healthcare system.

“More than four million people in Canada live with osteoarthritis, and many of them need joint replacements. My team’s research could greatly improve the outcomes of these surgeries, but donor support is vital for us to carry out this work.” - Dr. Guangju Zhai

When you donate to Arthritis Society Canada, you help fund research like Dr. Zhai’s innovative work, which could help improve the success of joint replacements.

Arthritis will not stop, but neither will we in tackling the disease. Please stand with us to drive progress this year to end the agony of arthritis.
