Mission

Our goal is to unite, educate, support research, and raise awareness for Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.

Our Story

CRPS Forum founder, Roxanne, was diagnosed with CRPS in 2011. While searching for valid information about her diagnosis, she realized there wasn’t a message board forum for The CRPS Community. In 2014, she decided to create CRPS Forum and launched it that fall. In addition to creating the first message board Forum for CRPS, she also began to work with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and The County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors to create awareness and proclamations for CRPS Awareness Day.

Los Angeles and Los Angeles County have proclaimed and supported CRPS Awareness Day for the last four years. On July 21st, 2017, she organized the first Major League Baseball game and CRPS Awareness game, which was held at Dodger Stadium. In order to continue her mission, CRPS Forum became a 501(c)(3) in the beginning of 2018.

On August 26th, 2018, we organized our Second Annual CRPS Awareness Day and Fundraiser at Dodger Stadium along with the first CRPS Convention and Talks at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel in Anaheim on November 3rd and 4th, 2018.

We’re currently prepping for our third annual awareness game at Dodger Stadium on August 3, 2019, and Second Annual CRPS Convention on November 2nd and 3rd, 2019 at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel in Anaheim, CA. We are excited to watch CRPS Forum grow and thankful for your support.
