September is National Arthritis Awareness Month in Canada. Over 4.6 million Canadians, adults and children, with arthritis suffer every day. This month we take time to consider what it means to live with chronic pain, and how we can help them. Throughout the month of September, The Arthritis Society encourages people to share their comment about arthritis on their social media platforms. Sharing stories and experiences will help to change perceptions around the disease and improve the fortunes of those living with it. This is a great time to help raise awareness arthritis and help raise the spirits of those who live with it!
Drop by Mosaic’s Community Resource Centre at The Shops on Steeles and Don Mills to grab literature on arthritis during Arthritis Awareness Month. Throughout the month of September Mosaic has information from The Arthritis Society set up outside our Resource Centre. We encourage members of the community to stop by and grab a brochure on arthritis and learn about it. We will have more information inside so stop by and grab what you need!
