More great media for For Grace as Pain Awareness Month goes into full swing! For Grace Director John Garrett co-wrote an article in PainPathway magazine's fall issue. A 34-year caregiver of a woman in pain, Garrett shares tips in New Technology for Caregivers about apps that can help even the most overwhelmed find a respite.
For Grace's quickly approaching 9th Annual Women In Pain Conference - "Pain Takes a Vacation: Actions and Strategies that Get Us Away" - is the focus of a LoveLettersLive.com article and podcast. A big thank you to the amazing Janet Gallin for your coverage of this event - and your continuing support of the work here at For Grace. It means the world!
Our September Share Your Story feature is woman in pain Mindy Meyer. Read Mindy's empowering pain tale about her CRPS experience - dealing with many bad doctors before finding a few good ones. And her message of hope and encouragement to others - "Believe in yourself and keep speaking your truth!" Catch Mindy at For Grace's 2016 Women In Pain conference where she'll moderate our first "Sisters In Pain" Empowerment Panel. Bravo, Mindy!
For Grace, State Senator Carol Liu (SCR 154) and Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl teamed up again this year to proclaim September as Pain Awareness Month and September 23 as Women In Pain Awareness Day. This date co-incides with For Grace’s 2016 Women In Pain Conference. Our deepest gratitude goes out to these amazing legislators (and their staffers!) who continue to champion the cause of women in pain. Thank you for being our heroes!
