Paul

My mam has terrible arthritis and has just had the first of two knee replacements. I've raised a bit of money to donate to Arthritis Research UK because I've seen how debilitating it can be.

Jainisha

My dad has recently become diagnosed with severe arthritis and thus I would like to make my contribution towards helping to developing medication or cures to assist with arthritis.

D Burton

No one should suffer, like my mum does. A prisoner in her own body. Racked with pain everywhere, all the time. I really hope you find a cure.

Leanne

My daughter Chloe aged 12 has JIA and recently featured in Take a Break magazine raising awareness of JIA. She would like to donate part of the money she made from telling her story back to the charity which she supports.

David

My father suffered from arthritis for many year prior to his recent death. The family though it appropriate to donate the collection from his funeral to Arthritis Research UK.

Sue

It would have been my mother's 94th birthday today. She'd suffered from arthritis from her 30s until her death nearly 6 years ago. Fortunately neither of her children have been so badly afflicted but I like to donate to Arthritis Research UK when I can.

Arthritis stories

Your donation can help millions of people who suffer every day. Here are just some of their stories...

Beverley

I have collected £5 each from 8 friends at a girly evening. I have one more organised for the summer and girls that couldn't make the girly evening will be donating. I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knees and hands. It started with years of knee problems and came to ahead after suffering with swollen knees through having an amazing time at Disney World. I didn't realise they were swollen and ignored them but struggled to walk. I have been in pain since and struggle every day.

David

Hi. I have osteoarthritis in my knees and spine, I am also a keen knitter and sewist. I make wheat bags and sell them at my local physiotherapy clinic and all proceeds go to Arthritis Research UK.

Pam

In 2015 I had surgery on my neck due to spinal cervical stenosis. I was then referred to various consultants which resulted in me finding out I had osteoarthritis in most of my joints. Due to professional advice I now manage my condition very well.
