First Annual Rheumatoid Arthritis Awareness Day

The very first Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Awareness Day will be observed this Saturday Feb 2, 2013. This unique initiative, established by the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation (RFP), hopes to promote awareness of this debilitating autoimmune disease, raise funds for further research and treatment, expose the true nature of the impact of living with RA, and to help overcome misconceptions that surround the illness. RPF founder Kelly Young points out,”joint inflammation is a prominent symptom of this disease for most patients, but it’s a disservice to refer to it as merely a type of arthritis.”

Rheumatoid arthritis is a progressive inflammatory disease that causes damage to joint and organ tissues, which often leads to pain, disability, and even increased mortality. Individuals struggling with RA have a higher incidence of stroke, atrial fibrillation, and silent heart attack. Although RA is a very serious autoimmune disease, the symptoms are often invisible to others making it very difficult to understand.

Rheumatoid Arthritis sufferers often come to our firm, Kantor & Kantor, when their disability claim has been denied by their insurance company. The denial of a disability insurance claim is one of the most financially and emotionally devastating events that can happen to a disabled person. With effective representation, you will be able to present the claim in such a way that the insurer may reverse its decision and pay the claim. If you or someone you know has had a disability claim wrongfully denied, we can help. Call (877) 783-8686 or navigate to
