There are now 58.5 million adults living and suffering through each day with doctor-diagnosed arthritis, that’s is one in every four adults. Projections indicate in 2040, there will be 78 million adults with doctor-diagnosed arthritis. In addition, there are 300,000 children in the U.S. who are diagnosed with juvenile arthritis, and likely facing managing it for life. There is only one way to stop this growth and find a cure—fund research.
