In August, I blogged about Jen’s Gift,  a posthumously published collection of Jennifer Abramson’s optimistic and spirit-filled postings on her Instagram site, Goal2Soul. Despite suffering with Lyme disease, toxic mold syndrome, and CRPS which rendered her housebound, Jen posted beautiful unique photos accompanied by insightful quotes, clever humor, and wisdom which continue to inspire her readers today.

In celebration of Jen’s life, Annie Abramson, Jen’s mother has created a fundraising challenge for the CRPS community during November’s CRPS Awareness month. Anne has pledged to match up to $10,000 every dollar which is spent on purchasing Jen’s Gift or donated in Jen’s memory. All of the challenge’s proceeds will be invested in RSDSA’s research fund.
