May 5th is #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving and unity as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
RSDSA has an emergency assistance fund, the Jenkins Patient Assistance Fund, to provide emergency financial aid to individuals and their families with CRPS. The fund is named in honor of Brad Jenkins, a young motorcycle racer who was injured in a race and developed CRPS.
Some examples of help include:
- Utility payments to stop shut-offs
- Travel & lodging costs to travel to consult out-of-state pain specialists
- Phone consults with pain specialists outside of an insurance network
- Visits at reduced fees with pain specialists for individuals without insurance
Mark your calendar in order to help us make a difference in the lives of people with CRPS by making a donation on GivingTuesdayNow, May 5th.
