As one of many advocacy actions For Grace is taking this month, including our September 24th 10th Annual Women In Pain Conference, we co-sponsored a Massachusetts proclamation that touts September as Pain Awareness Month in the Bay State. Lead by the efforts of the US Pain Foundation, the proclamation makes the case that chronic pain is a major health problem which affects one in four adults in the US. We're proud to be partnering with 10 other pain organizations on this much-needed awareness that addresses the impact of chronic pain on society.
Art will play a featured role in depicting "The Pain-Cancer Connection" at For Grace's 10th Annual Women In Pain Conference on September 24th. Woman In Pain and award-winning artist, Radene Marie Cook, will share via slides throughout the live webcast her years-in-the-making gallery of original art, along with this new themed piece - all that stunningly capture her epic journey with chronic pain. To find out more about Radene and her mission to artistically express the hard-to-put-into-words pain experience, please link here.
