My story

<p>Everything Arthritis Research UK does is underpinned by Research and this work takes the pain away from sufferers of all forms of arthritis and helps people to remain active.&nbsp; I will be walking the Arthritis Research mile with Catherine Bull.&nbsp; Cat was just 14 when she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis after suffering increasing pain in her knees, feet and wrist for more than a year.&nbsp; Cat was put onto a drug called Etanercept, one of a new class of therapies for severe Rheumatoid Arthritis that was pioneered by Arthritis Research UK and has transformed Cat&rsquo;s quality of life and has been a huge improvement.&nbsp; Despite a hip replacement, Cat is leading a remarkable life now and Cat and I are hoping to raise awareness of arthritis in young people as one of Cat&rsquo;s main struggles was people not understanding what she was going through. I hope that you will support Cat and the many young people that need support by donating to Arthritis Research UK and easing the suffering and pain so many go through.</p> <p>Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.</p>
