Arthritis refers to more than 100 different diseases - many of which include joint and organ inflammation - whose common denominators are chronic pain and loss of mobility.

Over 52 million people have doctor diagnosed arthritis in the US. Arthritis is the #1 cause of disability in the US. Of those individuals, women with arthritis outnumber men three to one. Locally, 2 million people have some form of arthritis. Arthritis affects people of all ages, including 300,000 children - more than cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy and sickle cell anemia combined. Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis is one of the most common chronic illnesses of children and California has the most cases out of any state in the US with 38,000 cases.

Arthritis limits the activities and work of 25 million Americans. In 2009, the cost to the US economy of arthritis was $128 billion - $46 billion in direct medical expense and $82 billion in lost productivity.

The need is great and AF needs great people to volunteer to make a difference in the lives of people living with these diseases. Please join us!
