U.S. Pain Foundation 

Pain Awareness Month Pledge  
 September 2016


As a pain ambassador, advocate, volunteer or member of U.S. Pain Foundation, I support the organization’s mission: To educate, connect, inform and empower those living with pain while advocating on behalf of the entire pain community. I support U.S. Pain Foundation’s effort to serve those who live with pain conditions, their caregivers and healthcare providers. I also support U.S. Pain Foundation's commitment to encouraging pain survivors become proactive in their treatment plan.

In recognition of the above, I PLEDGE TO:

RECOGNIZE the more than 100 million American adults - and countless children - who live with some form of chronic pain on a daily basis.

RAISE AWARENESS to the best of my ability in an effort to eliminate the societal stigmas associated with chronic pain.

EDUCATE and EMPOWER myself as well as others to address the obstacles facing individuals with chronic pain.

PROVIDE SUPPORT for pain warriors or caregivers who may need it.

BECOME THE VOICE for those who cannot speak.

Furthermore, I pledge to support, embrace and advocate for the pain community not just during Pain Awareness Month, but every day throughout the year. I will do this through the engagements offered by U.S. Pain Foundation and by being nonjudgmental toward those living with the complex disease of chronic pain.
