I have shared everything with you: poetry, snippets from my own journey with IC and chronic pelvic pain as well as notices about pharmaceutical shortages and information in the news from both the IC Network and the Interstitial Cystitis Association. It feels wonderful to connect with so many people within the community providing support and advocacy! The one thing that I have kept hidden from each of you is my heart's desire to help IC and sexual pain patients on a deeper level: to form a global focused non profit with its sole mission to provide hope and resources for bladder, pelvic and sexual pain patients. My wonderful team has helped me with starting a crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo (which includes a video of IC and chronic pain patients sharing their stories and features Dr Robert Echenberg, Alexandra Milspaw, Amy Stein and Dr. David Wiseman). Please watch the video and share with your friends, family and co-workers and if possible please consider donating to the crowdfunding campaign so that we can immediately begin our mission work once our new non profit, Bridge for Pelvic Pain is up and running! Together, we can provide hope and support!
