November is CRPS/RSD Awareness Month!
Please help us raise awareness and support research initiatives for CRPS/RSD through our crowdfunding campaign. We hope to bring attention to this disorder, as we enter into CRPS/RSD awareness month. No one should have to live in pain!
Several years ago our friend Laura had knee surgery following years of being an active, athletic and otherwise healthy person. Following the surgery, Laura was hopeful she would be back to sports in no time. Unfortunately, the pain she expected to go away got worse, and she was forced to start each day not knowing what kind of burning and/or discomfort to expect, often having attacks that made the pain unbearable. After countless doctors’ visits, and many health professionals dismissing the pain as “in her head,” Laura was finally diagnosed with RSD. We all knew very little about what this disorder was, and it wasn’t until Laura worked hard to educate us that we realized how important it was to spread awareness of the disorder, because no one should have to live in pain!
