RSDSA and Supporting the CRPS Community
2020 has been a difficult year for everyone and yet, despite the pandemic of 2020 the RSDSA support of the complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) community has helped the community to emerge stronger and closer than ever.
Community is profoundly important to those with CRPS. Living with a chronic disease, in constant pain, often unable to work or cut off from family and friends, community is the bright light that sustains us. It is your continuing donations that enable us to keep that light shining.
What did your dollars do to build CRPS community?
- Facebook Live series – twice monthly presentations on the latest theories about and treatments for CRPS. Sessions were attended by as many as 1000 people and could also be viewed when posted to RSDSA’s YouTube channel.
- Our first Virtual CRPS Awareness Walk – held in August, it was a testament to the commitment of our RSDSA community members who raised both awareness and funds in 40 states and 3 countries.
- Treating the Whole Person: Optimizing Wellness virtual conference – Four nights of pertinent information from CRPS researchers and clinicians. Followed by one-to-one networking that reached previously unconnected CRPS Warriors to become part of the caring community.
- In Rare Form – a new monthly mini-newsletter that updates the Warrior community on current research, news, CRPS initiatives and special events
WHAT IS CRPS?
CRPS 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 cancer, amputation, childbirth and kidney stones. It often prevents patients, who we call CRPS Warriors, from completing regular daily tasks.
