For Grace’s September 2022 Story of the Month

Check out For Grace's September Story of the Month! Carol Barnett already had a couple of serious pain challenges after developing CRPS from a toe fracture and small fiber neuropathy from toxic exposure. When breast cancer came knocking, Carol quickly assessed that she couldn't tolerate conventional treatment, especially the recommended mastectomy. As luck would have it, she stumbled upon a cutting edge therapy, Cryoblation, that kills cancer cells with a freezing agent. Carol's now cancer free, sharing "Always remember to take a breath and look for options."

Reso Once Again Brings Pain Awareness to the Golden State

Working with Senator Maria Elena Durazo for the second year in a row, For Grace is sponsoring a resolution that will trumpet pain awareness in the Golden State. The bill will once again proclaim September as Pain Awareness Month and be signed into law by the end of the 2021-2022 legislative session. As For Grace leaders work to introduce legislation that will increase Medi-Cal coverage for complementary pain management therapies, this popular resolution will go far to help California lawmakers understand the barriers to care faced by women in pain.

For Grace excitedly endorses a phenomenal new  cookbook!
