POWER OF PAIN FOUNDATION
April 5, 2013

In 1990 I was diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD). In 2006 I became friends with Barby Ingle, who also has RSD. Later that year, her family founded the Power Of Pain Foundation a 501-C-3 charity to help those in Chronic Pain due to a Neuropathy condition. The POPF offers education, awareness, and help. Barby has personally helped me understand RSD more in the last 6 1/2 years, then I did in the 16 years before meeting her. The POPF has a gift of reaching people, and showing them that there is hope and help. The POPF offers classes and events not only in AZ, but all over the US. In 2010 I became an executive board member and since the beginning with a start of 4 board members, they now have 14 ambassadors, 8 executive board members, 13 board of directors, and over 80 event volunteers in several states, that can also teach classes, and host events. The POPF teaches classes to caregivers, patients and providers many of them lack education on chronic pain. The POPF Chairman, Barby Ingle has written 4 successful books on Chronic Pain, and published several articles. She has even done some television, trying to educate the public. I want to say Thank You Barby Ingle and the Power of Pain Foundation, We love you for all you do to advocate for everyone with pain.

POWER OF PAIN FOUNDATION
September 27, 2012

I have been apart of the Power of Pain Foundation since its inception in Nov. 2006. I have seen this charity grow over the past 6 years and help thousands of people get the resources and information they need in their own journey. I am honored to be an executive board member and look forward to helping in what ever ways I am able over the many years to come.
