Emma Says "Thank You"

You helped give Emma the support she needed so that she doesn’t have to face her arthritis diagnosis alone. Thank you.

We are so thankful to our wonderful donors who responded so generously to our recent Tax Appeal. We shared the story of Emma, a brave young mum who was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at just 27 years old.

Emma said, “It broke me in ways I cannot describe. I felt like someone had shattered my life and sentenced me to a life of pain and suffering.”

But thanks to your compassionate support Emma received the information and advice she needed to start treatment. Emma’s wish is for everyone to have access to the same support she received when she was first diagnosed – because she knows what a huge difference this makes.

Our incredible supporters, just like you, helped to raise more than $50,000 to make Emma’s wish come true. This will go directly towards providing vital emotional and practical support services like the free Infoline, self-management courses, webinars and online resources.

Thank you again for making a real difference in Emma’s life, and others like her, every single day.  

Emma says, “Despite everything, I have high hopes for the future. I know there’s always somewhere to turn when I need it, and I can’t tell you how much this means to me.” 

Your gift will help fund self-management courses, education seminars and will provide individual support for people living with arthritis.
