Walking the Walk - Peace, Hope, & Buttahflies in 2016

Everyone knows a grandma with a bad hip or an uncle with a bad knee – that’s arthritis. What a lot of people don’t know is that that’s only one kind of arthritis, but there are over a hundred more … and they can happen to anyone, at any age.

We’ve been living with a number of them (whether we’re the ones diagnosed or the ones who love them) … and they involve more than just the joints. Sarcoidosis is also in Kerry’s lungs and skin; Fibromyalgia causes extreme fatigue and muscle pain; Bursitis and Tendonitis add to the mix, often stopping her in her tracks. The combination leaves her needing a cane on a regular basis, and a scooter for longer distances. The symptoms may vary from day to day or month to month, but THERE IS NO CURE, so we’ll be living with them forever.

The Arthritis Foundation is not only working to find a cure and better treatments, but it is helping to raise awareness, and advocating for legislative issues that affect all patients. We’ve gone to Albany and Washington, DC to join in this fight, and in May, we’ll be doing our part right in NYC.

The Walk to Cure Arthritis is our chance to be seen and heard focusing on this important cause. Our team will include some who walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, some who volunteer on the advocacy side, and some who do a little of both … not to mention those who send their love (and their donations) from afar. Join our team to walk with us, and let Kerry know if you want to volunteer. If you can’t do either, please support our efforts with a donation. Anything you do can make a difference!
