Event Information: The 2nd Annual Walk to Conquer CRPS will be August 31 at Point Pleasant Park! Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is the highest rated pain condition to date & there is no cure yet! Our only hope is to find treatment options to alleviate the pain. CRPS takes over almost every nervous system in my body and it will continue to do so. I'm not alone in this battle. There are Warriors around the world who are going through the same thing. 66% of patients in Canada have to see 3 or 4 doctors before a proper diagnosis. By that time, the damage is normally done & treatments will not be as effective. Let's work together to raise awareness! Come walk with us, share this on social media, talk about it with your friends, family and coworkers -they're invited too!- Help us raise funds and awareness for CRPS- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, it's complex, but one step at a time we're going to figure it out with your help! <3 Last year, we were able to raise $1,000 for the cause.
