BENEFITING: Arthritis Foundation
ORGANIZER: Arthritis Foundation
As many of you know, my mother suffers from Rheumatoid Arthritis, an auto-immune disease that turns the synovial fluid in your joints into harden crystals. The disease effects more than 1.3 million Americans. For many, this disease is treatable; however, approximately 20% of RA patients do not respond to any medicine currently available. My mother is one of those unlucky souls. She has lost the flexibility and motion in her wrists and hands, and is starting to lose it in her ankles. As such, I am choosing to run for her, and the approximately 250,000 men and women who are unresponsive to the treatment options currently available. Every dollar you donate will help improve the research and development surrounding this awful disease! Please help me support my mother and thousands like her, as they fight this painful disease! Any donation (small or large) would be greatly appreciated!
