Your gift = 2X the Holiday Wins!

Being diagnosed with arthritis as a child was painful and isolating for Lisa. Still, she says, “It doesn’t define who you are.” Since stress can exacerbate arthritis symptoms, a holiday win for the Blooms looks like quiet time at home, baking with their son. Whether it’s a quiet evening of baking, a brisk hike or a getaway, they don’t take any of it for granted.

Connecting with others through the Arthritis Foundation made Lisa feel less alone. The importance of that connection is part of what inspired Lisa and her husband Lee to offer a generous challenge to other Arthritis Foundation supporters. Right now, when you make a year-end gift to the Arthritis Foundation, the Blooms will match it up to a campaign total of $150,000. That means your gift can go twice as far! This offer is good until December 31, so don’t wait.

Make your year-end gift today and double your impact on arthritis research, support, and connection.
