OUR MISSION

The mission of the Arthritis Foundation is to improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control and cure of arthritis and related diseases.

LEADERSHIP PERSPECTIVE

Dear eHEADLINES readers,

Our fight against the unacceptable pain and disability of arthritis is relentless. This year we made a difference in the lives of tens of thousands of adults and children with arthritis through research, advocacy and patient education and programs. Our success directly stems from your generous support and commitment to our mission.

We salute and thank you for moving with us at the Arthritis Walks or the California Coast Classic Bike Tour, enjoying a massage or facial on the Massage Envy's " Healing Hands for Arthritis" day, or participating in the many programs in your community. Thanks to your support, the "Commitment to a Cure" Awards Gala in Beverly Hills, honoring acclaimed actor, producer and humanitarian, Mr. Danny Glover, was a huge success. We look forward to fun and festive Jingle Bell Run/Walk events in December and invite you to join us!

Heartfelt thanks for your support of the Foundation and the millions we serve. We wish you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season and good health and happiness in 2013.

Sincerely,


E. Robert Harris, M.D.
Chair
