It is time for a change and we need your help. Rheumatoid Arthritis has been around for a very long time, but the funding for research and better patient care has been lacking for years. Only a few days away from my birthday and the $1010 I raised with my birthday wish is a very small start, but today I decided to ask for more. I have set a new goal of $1500 in donations to Rheumatoid Patient Foundation after watching this RA Is Not “arthritis” – A PSA about Rheumatoid Arthritis video again. It was a reminder of how much Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease (our new name for it, since it is not just “arthritis”) has lacked in research funding. Current research for Multiple Sclerosis or Lupus is around $330 per patient, but less than $26 per patient with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
