Dear Australian Pain Society, in correlation with National Pain Week Australia 2016, may I kindly bring to your attention a documentary by Charles Maddock who tells the story of CRPS warriors in the movie Trial By Fire. Complex Regional Pain Syndrown aka CRPS is a progressive neurological condition with no known cure. Pain patients are campaigning for awareness and we require the interest of other warriors, physician, researchers, government bodies, pain societies, disability organisations and #APS to continue to support us in our endeavours. Thank You 💖 Hoping for a cure and campaigning for a cause #CRPS #TrialByFire #CharlesMaddock 💕 Leanne from Sydney, Australia 🐨
