Our May Changemaker: National Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Association

Dear ShopAnthropists!

As we get ready to celebrate our moms we selected as Changemaker of the Month of May.
One out of 5 Americans will be diagnosed with fibromyalgia while scientists are still looking for the cause of this widespread disease that can truly disable affected sufferers. Most of them will be women of childbearing age!
FMCPaware works to find solutions!
Mission Statement:  The mission of the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association (NFMCPA) is to build a united patient and health care community to create a strong voice and organizational base to educate and execute advocacy programs regarding access to care, research, diagnosis and treatment for people suffering with chronic pain from fibromyalgia and overlapping conditions.

Vision Statement:  The goal of the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association (NFMCPA) is to educate the patients and the medical community as well as the public, government agencies and scientists regarding the importance of timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment of FM and overlapping conditions in order to gain the most positive outcome for this patient population.

Here at npsm we have been busy putting great gift ideas together in our Mother's Day Shopping Site so your gift to mom can also generate a gift to FMCPaware.

Thank you for being a ShopAnthropist!
