I Need Your Help – Let’s Rock the Walk

Hey everyone! Did you know that over 60 million American adults have doctor-diagnosed arthritis? 2.2 million adults in Ohio and over 8000 children.

That’s a lot of people dealing with joint pain and inflammation every day. But it’s not just adults – there are also over 300,000 kids with arthritis in the US, and Ohio alone has almost 8,000 children living with juvenile arthritis.

The economic burden of arthritis is significant, costing $304 billion in medical expenses and lost wages. And it’s not just physical pain – many adults with arthritis also struggle with mental health issues like anxiety and depression.

But there is hope! By advocating for state and federal legislation that helps people with arthritis, we can make a real difference. This year, one legislative priority is tackling high out-of-pocket costs for specialty medications.

If you want to help, please consider donating to arthritis research or supporting legislation that helps people with arthritis. Let’s work together to make life better for everyone dealing with joint pain and inflammation. #ArthritisAwareness
