World Arthritis Day is the highlight of a year round campaign run by EULAR (European League Against Rheumatism) for people with rheumatic diseases.
The aims of World Arthritis Day are:
You may recall the blog entry from when I saw the podiatry surgeon, we discussed fusion surgery and I was placed on the waiting list...
With the waiting time-scale being about 3 months and me seeing the surgeon in March, I expected surgery to be around June. This meant the letter would have arrived around the end of May giving a date for pre-op assessment and surgery.
Since moving to Leicestershire, I have got involved with various charities. One of the key aims was to learn more about the condition I have, juvenile idiopathic arthritis and to build a network of other people in a similar situation.
