I am a proud member of the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation. Today, they announced the establishment of the first Rheumatoid Disease Awareness Day. It will be held each year on February 2nd. That coincides with Heart Awareness Month. It is not coincidental. Rheumatoid Disease is known to affect the heart as well. In my opinion there is not a day that fits more.
I am extremely excited about February 2nd. Our time has come to put this incurable, disabling disease in the spotlight.
Here is a link to the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation .You can find out more information about the RPF there, sign up for a membership or make a donation. Please take the time to read about it and share it with everyone you know. Below is a copy of the official press release. Thank you!
