You can make a difference!

The Richmond Together Walk is this Saturday, May 7th, and I am happy to report that I am recovered enough to make the trip with Mark and Suzy Sioux to attend! It’s time to make fibromyalgia and chronic pain illnesses visible, advocate for better access to care, and encourage and fund research that leads to better treatments. Throughout the walk, the New Originals with Carroll Ellis will perform live music. Face painters and yoga instruction will be available and we have more than $2000 in raffle prizes!
