National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association commemorates National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day with 2nd Annual Walk to CURE FM and national events
The National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association (NFMCPA) released its May 12 National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day events online along with the Guide to Creating Local Fibromyalgia Awareness Events. The NFMCPA’s main event, the national 1K and 5K Walk to CURE FM (Campaign for Understanding, Research and Education of Fibromyalgia) will be held in Logan, Utah, with satellite walks around the nation. The FM Mom and FM Dad of the year essay contests highlight the difficulties in parenting with FM or parenting a child with FM. Other events include Pledge to Care and a Lights of Hope candle lighting ceremony dedicated especially to the over 10 million people affected by fibromyalgia in the U.S. and 3-5 percent worldwide.
“Make Fibromyalgia Visible” is the NFMCPA’s theme for this year’s National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day, officially observed on May 12. Awareness Day is designed to increase awareness and understanding of fibromyalgia, a chronic pain disorder usually characterized by chronic widespread pain, multiple tender points, abnormal pain processing, sleep disturbances, fatigue and often psychological distress.
