Picklin' for a Cure

Thank you for a successful 2021 Picklin' for a Cure: an awareness and fundraising tournament for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (RSDSA) which my wife Karen (Kelly's and Kevin's Mom) has and Lewy Body Dementia (LBDA) as my brother (Dr. T.K. Warfield) has been diagnosed with.

Thank you to our Pickleball players, donors and sponsors. Because of them we will reach our goal and help support these two worthy organizations. Thank you.

Tom Warfield

Recent Activity

Karen Warfield

Karen Warfield, born and raised in Tucson, Arizona spent her entire career in the financial Industry. A business woman Karen also dedicated her life to building a family and raising her children. Karen is a wife, mother, daughter of Paul and Rita Metz and Grammy to five beautiful grandchildren. 

In 1980, Karen had an accident during the night closing, a large metal canister accidently fell on Karen’s arm.  As a result, she had to have surgery on a nerve in her arm, and complicating issues resulted Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) formerly called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD).  It took several years to get a proper diagnosis. Although, Karen had several more procedures and surgeries, she continued employment at the bank.  She persevered to become a financial planner. Karen’s last position, a private banker, was her favorite because of the relationships she developed with her high valued clients based on mutual trust and respect.  

Karen was forced to stop working because of CRPS. This was a difficult time because CRPS is so misunderstood and prognosis is unknown. Karen is raising money for research she hopes will lead to a cure. 

Karen loves sewing, crafts, travel and shopping . “God has me here on earth to love and play with my amazing grandchildren!”

TK Warfield

Dr. T.K. Warfield, a Tucson, AZ native and retired veterinary surgeon, was an associate veterinarian and eventually became the president of Valley Animal Hospital in Tucson. He practiced medicine for 40 years, with his primary goals always being to provide the residents of the Tucson metropolitan area with comprehensive medical and surgical care for their animals and for his hospital to be one of the leading veterinary hospitals in Arizona.

Dr. Warfield’s was also very involved with the Tucson community; at one time a Director on the Board of the Carondelet Foundation, the President of the Carondelet Foundation, Father of the Year at the Steele Children’s Research Center; and a member of the Tucson Humane Society Board, The Centurions and the United Way. He was an avid cyclist, runner, high mountain climber and Boy Scout leader.

Dr. Warfield was diagnosed with Lewy Body dementia in the fall of 2015. He officially retired from his practice in May of 2016. It was perhaps one of the most difficult decisions he has ever had to make and he misses Valley Animal Hospital and his patients every single day.

Dr. Warfield and his wife, Donna, married 51 years, are the proud parents of three children and eight grandchildren. T.K. Warfield's family has always been and will continue to be the greatest joy of his life.

About RSDSA

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, formerly known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) is a life-altering neuroinflammatory disorder that is the most painful of all medical conditions according to the McGill University Pain Scale. CRPS is rated more painful than some forms of cancer, amputation, fribromyalgia, and childbirth. It often prevents patients from completing regular daily tasks. There is no known cure. 

CRPS is a rare disease with only 50,000 cases being diagnosed per year in the U.S. Symptoms can be mild (swelling, joint stiffness, pain and changes in skin temperature) to extreme. There is no standard treatment or medications, that alleviate symptoms consistently. 

RSDSA raises funds for research to find better treatments – and a cure for CRPS. We also work with research groups and healthcare professionals worldwide to foster collaboration, communication and awareness.

 

Mission Statement

Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome Association (RSDSA) mission is to provide support, education, and hope to all affected by the pain and disability of CRPS/RSD, while we drive research to develop better treatments and a cure.

About LBDA

Lewy body dementia (LBD) is not a rare disease. It affects more than a million people and their families in the United States alone and is the second most common form of degenerative dementia. LBD symptoms may closely resemble other more commonly known disorders, and it is currently widely under-diagnosed.

While there is currently no cure for Lewy body dementia, early diagnosis and treatment may improve the quality of life and independence of the affected individual. Our vision is to one day find a cure for LBD and to provide specialized treatment and support to those still living with the disease.

The Lewy Body Dementia Association (LBDA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness of the Lewy body dementias, supporting people with LBD, their families and caregivers and promoting scientific advances. The Association’s purposes are charitable, educational, and scientific.

 

Mission Statement

Through outreach, education and research, we support those affected by Lewy body dementias, their families and caregivers. We are dedicated to raising awareness and promoting scientific advances.
