Blurb Verse

"And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us."
Romans 5:3-5

Support National Pain Week!

To those of you struggling with chronic pain, who know others who do or who just plain believe that chronic pain needs to be addressed by the government, please consider supporting National Pain Week 2012.

Here's some practical things you can do to help:

1. Sign the online petition to the Senate to request them to address and take action on the issue of chronic pain in Australia.

2. Print out a copy of the written petition to the House of Representatives and sign it. Get your colleagues, friends, church members, family etc to sign it. Send it via post to Chronic Pain Australia.

3. If you struggle with chronic pain yourself, then please register on the National Pain Week page and add your face to the 10,000 faces of pain campaign. Show the government that we are not small numbers and that this issue deserves attention.

4. If you do have the energy, make an appointment to see your local MP. Tell him/her about the issue of chronic pain, the pain you feel, its impact on your life and work etc. We need to let the government know that is not a passive issue raised by a few but one that deserves attention as it involves the daily pain of many in our country.

5. Inform Chronic Pain Australia of which MP you've met with and when you discussed chronic pain with them so that they know how many local MPs have heard.

Even if you can't do all these steps, please do as many as you can. Together, we can make a difference!
Together, we can be heard!
