“Arthritis is one of those diseases that is confusing and causes huge dramas in people’s lives. Very little is known about the disease and it puts a lot of pressure on people’s lives. Arthritis NSW helps to alleviate that pressure and provide the information and support which is so important when going through such a confusing disease. I support Arthritis NSW because it is such a small team trying to make a big difference. Living with arthritis is so painful at times it’s nice to know there are people out there that understand and want to help.”
