In 1997, a study from the CDC showed that 43 million Americans had arthritis. Now a new CDC study reveals that 70 million, or one in three, has arthritis. The numbers a staggering, but we already know how painful and debilitating this disease is just by looking around the members in our own lodge hall or feeling our own pain.
Please give generously to our Arthritis Fund.
During the month of March plan a fund raising activity or give $1.00 per member and receive a SGL/IARA Certificate for your lodge.
Another good way to get information on this painful disease is to go to the Arthritis Foundation web site www.arthritis.org This site contains lots of good information on exercise, medications, diet and scientific advances. Your contributions help make these advances possible.
