Living Better, Ageing well- 2 Day Fun & Informative Event by Middle East Arthritis Foundation

“Living Better, Ageing well”

I have seen a dear friend put up a valiant fight, dealing with Arthritis, trying to go through life as normally as possible. I have seen her always keeping her spirit up, never losing her jest and humor for life. But if we are affected by this painful malady or have seen a loved one go through it we can understand just how much of inner strength coping with Arthritis demands. Most people are aware that Arthritis is an extremely painful condition affecting the musculoskeletal system. The common assumption is that this debilitating disease affects mostly adults above the age of 50 or the elderly. Facts however speak a very shocking and distressing story. In USA alone, more than 300,000 children are held hostage by juvenile arthritis. New age science and research in this area has helped control the incapacitating effects of this disease. Life doesn’t have to become a prolonged battle any more.
World Arthritis day is on 12th October and Middle East Arthritis Foundation has organized 2 days of fun filled and informative events on Friday 10th & October & 11th October . All events and free of any charge. Events are for all age categories and range from advice from experts to cooking to painting. To register or find out details call, Middle East Arthritis Foundation- 050 534 3182. Find out how to deal with Arthritis and lead a perfectly normal life organized.
