The Arthritis Foundation - Arthritis is the number one cause of disability in the U.S. AOII adopted The Arthritis Foundation as its philanthropy because rheumatoid arthritis, which is particularly severe, affects women roughly three times as often as men.  There is also a heavy emphasis on juvenile arthritis, which affects far more youths than many people think, including a few of their very own chapter members.  AOII has worked closely and fiercely with The Arthritis Foundation for the past 50 years to raise money and promote research that has greatly improved the diagnosis and treatment of the disease, in hope of someday eradicating its impact on so many lives.
