Arthritis Walk NY May 15, 2011

Dear Friends,
I want to thank you all for the support and love you continue to show me in many aspects of my life. I have so much to be grateful for.

Most of you know that the charity I volunteer for in New York is the Arthritis Foundation. My illness continues to cause chronic fatigue and disables me at times. The biologic medication that I inject every 2 weeks is becoming less effective because my body is beginning to build up an immunity to it. 300,000 kids have juvenile arthritis in the US and I receive daily emails from readers of my book who are not coping with the pain, or the psychological aspects of the disease. We need to find a cure.

I have decided to participate in the Arthritis Walk again. When you donate, or walk you’re helping to find a cure. Some of my students (past and present) will be walking with me in 2011, including Joseph Lebowitz who has raised more than $5000 over the years. In my school community, we now have 2 young children who suffer from Juvenile Arthritis. There is nothing sadder than seeing kids in pain. My hope is that you will support me in 2011 either by walking or donating. I can’t do this on my own.
In 2008 we raised $4,225.
In 2009 we raised $4,735.
I’d love to get to $5000 in 2011.

With sincere and heartfelt thanks,
Karen Ager
