Address:

11 Topstone Road Redding CT 06896 USA

Mission:

The Raynaud''s Association was founded to help Raynaud''s sufferers cope with day-to-day activities for maintaining or improving their quality of life.

The organization is committed to:

(1) Member Support Services - offering sharing, support, and education to fellow Raynaud''s sufferers.

(2) Increasing Public Awareness of Raynaud''s - so more sufferers recognize the symptoms and seek treatment.

(3) Helping the Medical Community Research Treatments and Potential Cures for Raynaud''s - through patient recruitment and, eventually, funding for research.

Results:

2015 Awareness Campaign results by June: TV Stations have aired over 4,600 public service announcements, generating over 100 million impressions worth over $1.4 million in donated media dollars. The spots continue to generate excellent media exposure throughout the warmer season. Facebook and YouTube videos have generated over 20,000 views. Social media posts announcing the video reached nearly 85,000 followers.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

The website had more than 260,000 unique visitors in 2014 with winter traffic this past year averaging 30,000 to 50,000 monthly visits. There are also more than 10,000 Facebook fans and 1,700 Twitter followers engaged on our social media platforms. We host an active Discussion Forum with over 7,000 participants on our newer platform and nearly 70,000 users on our older platform where hundreds of guests browse our archived content each day.

Programs:

Services include a toll-free hotline and a website with an active discussion forum, informative blog, newsletter, social media pages and numerous other resources. In 2015 we launched an Awareness-Building Campaign to reach the 80 percent of the 15-30 million people with Raynaud’s who do not realize their pain and discomfort has a medical explanation. Awareness and medical attention are important to prevent permanent blood vessel damage and to rule out more serious autoimmune diseases.

Incredibly helpful and useful resource for an underfunded cause. So many sufferers and even more who remain undiagnosed. Thanks.

This organization had helped me with ways to explain what Raynaud's is and how it affects me and my family. It is a great website to go for products that have been tested by Raynaud's suffers, instead of having to Google products and be overwhelmed by so many search results. It is great to be able to share stories ,advice, and help others.

I have been a member for over 10 years. I am also a forum moderator. I enjoy meeting others who have Raynaud's and answering their questions. We share our experiences with Raynaud's.It helps to have someone listen to our stories and makes us feel that we are not alone.

I have been a member of the Raynaud's Association since 2005. I became a moderator on the discussion forum shortly after joining. It is so rewarding to interact with others and support fellow frosties who are seeking a diagnosis and treatment. Many people with Raynaud's are seeking help and information about Raynaud's. This website provides products, information and support to sufferers.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
