Hi guys! I’m back from my trip to the Canadian Pain Summit in Ottawa. I’m exhausted but I will update tomorrow and let you know how it all went.
Right now what I’m asking is this: please, please, please click this link to endorse a national pain strategy in Canada. I can’t even begin to tell you how important this is. Do it for the four year old, dying of cancer who’s in too much pain to even let her mother comfort her during her last days, do it for the soldiers who fought for our country only to be injured and live needlessly and continuously in pain afterwards, do it for the infants, born prematurely and stuck with needles over 20 times within their first day of life, do it for the teenager who thinks the only way to end the suffering is to end his life. Do it for the 1 in 5 Canadians suffering with some form of chronic pain.
We need to get the word out there, we need to step up and make the difference in our country, for our people and hopefully, others will follow. This is so important.
