CRPS Warriors Foundation Has Been Born!
Our CEO & Founder was first diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) in February of 2015. After misdiagnosis, almost losing her life four times due to botched surgeries, and severe withdrawals due to many repeated denials of treatments and medications from the Workers Compensation system, her CRPS went from the original injury of a fractured left foot to full body including her intestinal tract and other internal organs. Though every day was a continuous fight whether it was with Work Comp or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) she never gave up. When she lost both her parents in 2018, she hit rock bottom but with the help and support of her attorney, doctors, family, and friends she decided it was time to make a change and fight!
In May of 2020 she organized a Board of Directors from 5 different states who all have the same passion and drive as she does to help other Warriors. Now the CRPS Warriors Foundation is born and still with the support of her attorney, doctors, family, friends, and a great team she can see her dream become a reality!
Her belief is no Warrior should ever be turned down for treatments, medications, transportation, or medical equipment just because the insurance companies do not get it. It is time for a change, and she is hoping this foundation is just the beginning for that change!
“Our Mission is to support the care and well-being of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) patients and their families through education, financial assistance, programs, and research.”
