As part of For Grace's 2020 focus on the chronic pain-cancer connection, we'll be spotlighting themed stories for our Share Your Story page. If you're experiencing or have experienced both pain and cancer, please submit your story (400 words or less) with a photo so we can feature it as a Story of the Month. Thank you in advance for helping us bring to light this under-appreciated connection - and please send submissions to email@example.com.
A great article about the For Grace co-sponsored CRPS survey ran yesterday on the National Pain Report penned by editor-in-chief Ed Coghlan. As a result of tremendous outreach from all-on-deck advocacy organizations and this article, we've already received over 1,150 responses - and we expect many more. If you are or have been challenged by CRPS, please take this survey to help drive better understanding which will lead to more research and improved life outcomes.
For Grace founder Cynthia Toussaint is the focus of a documentary that is detailing her breast cancer journey – one that is unique due to her many CRPS complications. Veteran storyteller (CNN, CBS), Brian Bielanski, is producing this film that will spotlight the Chronic Pain-Cancer connection and one person’s journey into the unknown – a story that we hope will have a happy ending. Check back to see how this project develops…
For Grace, in collaboration with other pain advocacy organizations and Grunenthal pharmaceuticals, has developed an in-depth Complex Regional Pain Syndrome survey that aims to develop greater disease understanding . In order to truly comprehend this poorly understood disease, we need your help - and hope you will share your CRPS experience from diagnosis to current day. We believe this survey will greatly contribute to better therapies and quality-of-life outcomes. Please link HERE to take this anonymous survey.
