For Grace is excited to announce a deepening partnership with The Mighty's worldwide community to educate, inspire and empower people with pain. Beginning in February, Cynthia Toussaint will host a live stream with a different guest each month. She'll interview and talk with Miracle Makers, many who have survived impossible odds and gone on to make the world a better place for people with pain. All of her guests will be inspiring change agents! Please check back soon for more details...
For Grace founder Cynthia Toussaint sat down with Dr. Melissa Cady to talk about her 36+ year high-impact, persistent pain experience, and her book, Battle for Grace. In this powerful interview, Cynthia not only chronicles her pain/fatigue journey, but speaks to how she was able to heal herself to a large degree utilizing self-care techniques like narrative therapy and the expressive arts.

For Grace founder Cynthia Toussaint shares her story of inspiration and resilience in the recently released book, "When Bodies Break: How We Survive & Thrive with Illness & Disability." Authored by Cameron B. Auxer, this is a "chicken soup"-style book offering personal stories of pain, illness and how people can ultimately triumph. Women in pain, pick up a copy on Amazon today!
To continue the good work of For Grace's 2018 Change Agent Pain Summit, we've convened a committee to draft a white paper to highlight the day and present key recommendations from the luminaries who attended and participated. The main goal of the report is to educate and enlighten California legislators and staffers at For Grace's (TBA) 2019 Sacramento summit where we'll work to implement the National Pain Strategy and inspire legislative solutions. Committee members include Dr. Roger Fillingim, Diane Hoffmann, Dr. Wayne Jonas, Dr. Sean Mackey, Dr. Steven Richeimer, Dr. Bob Twillman and Christin Veasley. What a dream team!!
