Woman In Pain Christy Swager, mother of three, shares how a simple ice skating injury turned into one of the worst pain diseases in the world: Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Taking years to get an accurate diagnosis, seeing countless doctors in the process while being told she was a drug addict, Christy copes as best she can with pain that is endless and debilitating. As she states, "It's a bitter pill to swallow."
Calling all volunteers! We are gearing up for our annual event this fall and we need your help! In honor of our 10th year of devotion to women in pain, we will be holding a special Change Agent Pain Summit that aims to promote discussion across different professional disciplines and affecting positive change for those living with pain. Link here to make a difference!
Taking a stand for better days ahead, For Grace has endorsed Senate bill 562 which will enact universal healthcare in California. Our hope is that once this bill is signed into law, SB 562 will serve as a model for the rest of the country to assure access to health care for all women in pain. For Grace will continue to attend rallies and town halls in partnership with the Health Care for All organization.
Happy to share For Grace turns 15 years old today! We're deeply pleased that our media outreach, legislation, public speaking, events, support groups and writing have made a positive difference in awareness and care for so many. This year we're as busy as ever traveling the globe to shine a bright light on the plight of women in pain and care gender bias. We're also authoring a new book, producing a show and planning our September Change Agent Pain Summit. Cheers to more good work and better days ahead! Thank you everyone for your big SUPPORT.
