Dear Friend,

In December 2005, my world changed. I woke from hysterectomy surgery with electrifying, shocking pain going through my body and a numb left leg. I kept saying, “Something is terribly wrong,” but my doctors told me it was just the effects from anesthesia. I felt completely misunderstood and rejected by the medical community, even when I finally received a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Life-altering pain and fibromyalgia symptoms escalated every day, and I was afraid the torture would never end. Practically bedridden for 16 months, I couldn’t care for myself. I wanted to die many times, but I held on for my husband and children.

 You or someone you love likely has had life disrupted by fibromyalgia or chronic pain diseases. So, you already know how devastating it can be and how it robs you of many of the things you enjoy. Struggling to care for yourself and your family may be your reality as it was mine.

But, perhaps the hardest part of all is when people tell you they don’t believe your pain is real, including your doctors and family members. Diane G. shared her story with us:

Our chronic pain disease is “invisible” because we look healthy. We are told it's “all in our heads.” We are dismissed by medical professionals, family, friends, co-workers, and strangers. We face labels, discrimination, and (on occasion) actual hate and violence. I am NOT invisible. I am real. My disease is real. My pain is real. I just want someone to see me, behind the fake smile.”

Please help us save lives by giving a gift now of $10, $25, $50, $100, or more to the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association.

I understand that your chronic pain is real, and I want the world to understand it.

Dear Friend,
 
You made a difference for more than 100 million Americans affected by life-altering, serious chronic pain through your donation to the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association (NFMCPA). As the president and founder of this organization, I am committed to keeping you well informed about the NFMCPA's advocacy and programs!
 
Together we created hope. With your previous support, the NFMCPA tackled crucial access to care barriers and reached new heights in 2016. 
 
Here are a few of the year's highlights:  

NFMCPA makes demands and creates change!
 
Together, WE advanced the National Pain Strategy to transform how pain is understood, assessed, treated, researched and prevented. YOUR advocacy and voice made this positive change. Personal stories of living with chronic pain flooded social media during the #ISpeakForPain campaign and led to more than 10,000 signatures on our White House petition to implement the National Pain Strategy. Federal officials, legislators and policy makers needed to know if you are receiving adequate pain management and relief, and YOU responded. I have already hand delivered more than 400 stories to members of Congress.

Dear Friend,
 
The NFMCPA wants to know your concerns and to provide the most relevant and useful support possible in 2017. Will you please take this 4-question survey about your experience with fibromyalgia so we can better serve you?
 
Your voice matters, and your pain is real. We get that, and we want the world to get it.Last year, NFMCPA surveyed members nationally asking which messages to take to Congress:
  • 36% want to mandate by legislation that a new National Institute of Pain be created so funding for pain is not spread out over 27 National Institutes and Centers
  • 35% want pain researched as a disease by itself instead of as a component of some other condition (i.e., diabetes, cancer) with increased research funding
  • 29% want to increase funding for individual chronic pain illnesses.
 
Results of this survey guide our 2017 advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill to create better care for people with pain.
 

Click here to take the survey!

 
You are making a difference and making fibromyalgia visible. Thank you for giving hope to millions of American men, women, and children affected by this disease.
