Well the week is over. I made it. Not without a brief episode of coleslaw-related food poisoning just before the final climb up Mt Wellington! A true physical and psychological challenge in the end. I have made the rather audacious shift to aim at $15k now that you have all been SO supportive!!
Just to whet the appetite, I paste here a couple of emails from participants in our OUTRAGEOUSLY SUCCESSFUL outreach events:
"The Pain Revolution message made so much sense to me. I have decided to take a different approach to my pain and, here is the amazing bit - it is ALREADY HELPING!! I have had knee pain for 15 years. My specialist said it is bone on bone and I would need a replacement one day for sure. So I had the replacement 6 years ago and I have had pain ever since. Until today!! Pain Revolution taught me that my pain system just MUST be overprotecting my knee and I have been reading all the fact sheets and starting pushing things just a little. It is like magic! Thanks for everything you are doing for our beautiful but often forgotten state."
"In 25 years of clinical practice, seeing people challenged by persisting pain every single day, I have never seen a clear way to help them take control of recovery. It has felt hopeless. Pain Revolution has given me new strategies and a new confidence. I can't believe I am now looking forward to my persistent pain patients coming in!"
Your donation will go straight to our flagship Local Pain Educator strategies, which are playing the long game; our vision is bold - that every Australian will have understanding, resources and access to local support to prevent and overcome persistent pain - and we will get there by embedding capacity in rural and regional communities.
Every little bit helps.
