Deuces Are Wild as For Grace Celebrates Another Milestone

Deuces are wild! Twenty-two years ago, For Grace launched its efforts to better the lives of women challenged by chronic pain. The journey has been arduous, but one with a bounty of accomplishment and never-ending hope. With much work still to be done to gain better wellness for our community, this year we turn our focus on overcoming the social isolation that often accompanies the chronic pain experience as well as the healing power of the expressive arts. We've also begun a bold, new project, dubbed Women In Pain Nation, that brings exciting new energy to our efforts. We're holding some great cards - and betting on a banner year!
