Every dollar you give brings us two steps closer

Arthritis Research Canada thanks Kelly Barber for sharing his story


There are no breaks and no days off for people living with arthritis.


Arthritis Research Canada is grateful to our donors who understand the daily struggle for people living with chronic pain. We know that you understand the importance of finding answers-answers that will give hope for people living with arthritis. That hope can start with YOU!


Kelly Barber, a retired firefighter, was diagnosed with osteoarthritis at the young age of 49. There were no medications or procedures that could repair the damage to Kelly’s joints; surgery to replace both hips was the only way to reduce his pain and gain back his mobility.


In the video below, Kelly shares his story because he sees arthritis as an invisible disease and wants to change that.
