You've been told that rheumatoid disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis, is not curable. That's false!

Can Rheumatoid Arthritis Be Cured?
by Perry Chapdelaine, Executive Director/Secretary
You've been told that rheumatoid arthritis and other forms of arthritis are not curable. That's false!
I had "galloping" rheumatoid arthritis in the late 70's and early 80's. My doctor said I would soon be crippled. I recovered with the use of recommended treatments and the grace of God and have been well since!
Are you filled with pain day and night, and want relief? Do you view the future as a cripple, suffering from constantly decreasing abilities? Do you want to stop this crippling? Do you or your child live pain free for but minutes each day and then only at the will of a drug, a doctor, or by courtesy of a fat pocketbook? Especially are you a person who wants relief from this centuries-long scourge?
The Arthritis Fund
A good way to make your contribution live for years onward is to plan us into your will. As others have done, specify that an amount or percentage of money or property be given to The Arthritis Trust of America/The Rheumatoid Disease Foundation. Although you can create your own will and bequest, your attorney should be involved to insure that your wishes will not be thwarted.
Our Assurance To You... if you wish to obtain a refund of your donation to The Arthritis Trust of America, simply send us a photo-copy of both the front and back of your canceled donation check made out to The Arthritis Trust of America and a refund will be issued immediately. If you are requesting a refund for a relative, also mail in an original, notarized copy of your Power of Attorney. Although we would appreciate contributions, none is required when printing out any of our free articles or books. Sweepstakes entries do not require a donation to be eligible to win.
The Arthritis Trust of America is a project of the Roger Wyburn-Mason and Jack M. Blount Foundation for the Eradication of Rheumatoid Disease, a not-for-profit [IRS 501(c)(3)] charitable organization.
