Mission: Our mission is to educate, empower and advocate for those individuals whose lives have changed due to chronic and/or intractable pain.
We strive to educate society that chronic pain may be a life-long problem. Our goal is to raise public and professional awareness for those who are unfamiliar with chronic pain about the factors that often result in having chronic pain and the need for ongoing medical care and research for new methods/medications for the treatment of chronic pain.
Through our private website we strive to provide support for those with chronic pain in their journey of learning how to live a full and fulfilling life while continuing to seek out advancements in and advocate for their own medical care. We also strive to support the families and caregivers as they learn how to advocate and care for the afflicted person.
Target demographics: chronic and intractable pain sufferers
Direct beneficiaries per year: 1000
Geographic areas served: online websites
Programs: We are an online support website. We have groups that teach other pain sufferers how to deal with their own pain issues, support (for anyone including the healthy individuals in learning what obstacles pain sufferers go through today). We also teach those touched by pain in how to advocate for themselves and others and help in trying to navigate a health system that is biased against pain sufferers.
A safe place to share my chronc pain issues. The staff is caing although everyone has their own personal pain issues. I feel no judgment about my pain issues. Just love and care. I felt so comfortable that I decided to volunteer. Even though I'm sick a lot, they accept what help im able to give. I love this non profit,
