We are making a concerted effort to get government funding for research increased. Please write your two senators and your congresspersons brief, courteous letters with this request. Now that scientists have the door open via the tremendous strides in the past decades, this is the most opportune time in history to search intensely for a cure. Emails are acceptable. Arthritis diseases disable more American breadwinners than other dread diseases. We do not minimize other diseases, we do not want their research dollars shifted to arthritis research; we want the wealthiest country in the world to use our surplus tax dollars to find a cure for kids in pain. They are our greatest natural resource. Two generations of adults currently are the target age for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the devious stalker of our immune systems. I know. I have 25 joint surgeries from this monster. May is national arthritis month, write often from now through May, some of you have many congressional seats, contact them. Write letters to your local newspapers, make the public aware of the adverse impact arthritis diseases have on the national economy (equivalent of a mild to moderate recession) Don't forget to complete your census form and return it April l; this affects all funding. Thank you for joining our effort. AKB
