BURNING FOR A CURE!
WHAT IS CRPS?
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is a progressive, neuro-inflammatory chronic pain condition that seems to be a result of dysfunction of the peripheral and central nervous systems. Typically, CRPS initially presents in an extremity following an injury, trauma, or surgery but can spread. Patients will typically report pain that is out of proportion to the inciting event along with other symptoms, (in the affected limb), such as inflammation, colour and temperature changes, increased sensitivity of skin, sweating changes and/or assymmetry, decreased range of motion, motor dysfunction, and changes in hair or nail growth. Within the medical community, it is currently considered the most painful disease a person can expierence.

Please join us for our Annual AGM at 7pm. We will be holding this year's meeting virtually via Microsoft Teams. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for an invite if you would like to attend.
Due to COVID-19, and the fact that we do not want to put any of our support group members at risk for exposure, we temporarily suspended our monthly support group in March 2020. Due to the uncertainty around when it will be safe to resume our in person meetings, we are looking to start holding monthly virtual support group meetings starting Sunday November 29. 2020. We will use Microsoft Teams and you do not require this app to participate. Email us at email@example.com for an invite to join.
Our November meeting will be a much needed check in, and will include some suggestions on how to manage your pain with the added stress of the holidays.
We hope that you will consider joining us!
Please consider a contribution to help improve awareness of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. All funds raised will go to distribution of materials and education within our community.
We are always looking for individuals to help us with our fundraising events.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be involved.
Our mission is to increase awareness about Complex Regional Pain, one person at a time, through sharing our personal journeys with others and educating them about the disease.
