For Grace has joined 73 organizations in writing a letter to the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis. The letter highlights the need to implement the National Pain Strategy as part of a long-term strategy to address the chronic pain and opioid epidemics, as well as the critical care needs of people with pain.
Woman In Pain Tracy Zuckerman is featured as For Grace's July Story of the Month! Her CRPS began with a car accident and changed everything in her life for the worse. Tracy's complaints of pain were quickly dismissed by her doctors and insurance company. In fact, so abused she grew to doubt herself. With time also came confidence and wisdom - and today she's an advocate for other women in pain. Hats off to you, Tracy!
