RSD/CRPS: Color the World Orange Day
Posted in Personal Injury on June 24, 2015
As some of you may know my wife Megan has suffered from RSD/CRPS since August of 2012 after a surgery. We encountered doctors that do not understand this disease. We struggled to understand it ourselves. Luckily, we found some great physicians and therapists who went out of their way to help Megan. Unfortunately, many people struggling with CRPS do not have the understanding, diagnosis, resources or connections to fight it.
Megan has joined a national effort to make November 2, 2015 “Color the world orange day.” The color orange is a reference to the fire-like burn that CRPS patients feel. She asked the Governor to proclaim, like in other states, November 2, 2015 “Color the world orange day” to spread awareness of this poorly understood disorder. Today we received this proclamation from Governor Haslam.
We encourage everyone who knows about RSD/CRPS to spread the awareness of this painful disease so that we can be better trained to fight it and find a cure.
