“My involvement with Arthritis NSW has been exceptionally good for me. I was involved in a local support group which helped me to look beyond my arthritis and focus on who, how, and what I can do to help others. My daughter and I raised $6,400 for Arthritis NSW running the City to Surf in 2014 and I’m a workplace giver through my employer Australia Post.” Jacqueline Payne, valued Member and supporter of Arthritis NSW who has lived with psoriatic arthritis for over eight years.
