If you have one of the l00-plus type of arthritis or know someone who does, please write your two senators and as many representatives as possible. Encourage them to increase funding to National Institute of Health by l5% and specifically for arthritis $350 million. With recent breakthrough in biotechnology, it is imperative that we adequately fund the search for a cure for the millions in pain. Arthritis impacts the national economy as a mild-to-moderate recession. We need your support and participation in our effort. Thank you. Allene, a l3-year-victim of RA.
