Let Me Know: If you’d like me to watch for articles on your pain condition, just drop me a note in the comments section below.
WARNING: My goal is to provide the most up-to-date news I can, which you can then take to your personal doctor and debate the merits of before you try it. I do not endorse any of the docs, treatments, info, and meds in anything I post nor can I guarantee they are all effective, especially not for everyone. As is the case with any health info, ALWAYS get your doctor's opinion first!

POPF Holiday Mail program: Support a Family Fighting Pain
This Holiday Season by Sending Words of Good Cheer!
This year the Power of Pain Foundation is starting a new tradition… a Christmas card for the special pain patient or caregiver in your life. Do you know someone who feels like they are alone; well we want to give them a little joy and cheer.
So, send us their address and we will get the joy of delivering holiday greetings to patients around the world. The cards and personal messages from you will be sent out on December 15th so they arrive just in time for Christmas. Thanks for providing a welcome “touch of love” for our pain community members during the holiday season.
Each year we will also collect cards between October and early December and then distribute them through the mail, at hospitals, and in other pain management locations.
There are several ways to be part of the Holiday Mail program for the pain community. In addition to sending your own cards, let POPF know who you believe needs a card and special message this year!
*Send your cards for distribution to:
