Suffering from a condition like rheumatoid arthritis (RA) can not only be physically painful, it can also cause serious emotional distress. Patients living with chronic and often misunderstood conditions like RA are tasked with managing their health while educating people around them about their condition. This is something the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation has been working to counteract since 2013 with an annual Rheumatoid Awareness Day.
To recognize the importance of awareness, funding and clinical research for patients with RA, the at-home testing group imaware™ is matching all donations to the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation up to $10,000 through February 12, a full ten days after RA Day 2019.
Finding Relief From Rheumatoid Arthritis
Challenging to treat and still not completely understood, rheumatoid arthritis can make even the smallest tasks an enormous challenge by causing pain, swelling and inflammation of the joints. While treatment options can be limited, many patients do find relief while helping to support others with the condition through clinical trials. Through these trials, patients are able to access cutting-edge treatment and, ideally, slow the progression of RA.
If you or someone you love is battling rheumatoid arthritis, there may be treatment options yet to be explored that can potentially have a lasting impact on the condition. Blazing a trail for future patients while seeking the very latest in treatment designed to improve mobility, alleviate pain and reduce joint damage means you’re able to help yourself while potentially helping others. RA Day has come and gone for 2019, but it’s not too late to make the pursuit of emerging treatment a goal for this year.
