Rocky Mountain CRPS/RSD (RMRSD) was founded in 2005 out of the belief that there are too many people suffering from RSD who are not getting the information and help they need. RMRSD was founded for the purpose of helping others with the disease. We believe that everyone can make a difference if they are just willing to try. If you are a sufferer of RSD or love someone who is, you have come to the right place. We plan to grow and make our voices and our bodies heard. So join us in finding a cure for CRPS/RSD and finally defeating this monster. We WILL find a cure....
We are one of the few non-profit organizations that is run by a completely volunteer Board of Directors. No money donated to Rocky Mountain CRPS/RSD is used for anything other than research donations. We provide all of our time and services free of charge because of the personal dedication of all those involved with this organization.
RMRSD's Mission Statement
Our mission is to effectuate a cure for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) by raising funds for awareness, education, and research. In addition, we seek to promote aid, care, and support to all those affected by this disease. (10/8/07)
