OUR MISSION: The Purple Bucket Foundation Inc. is committed to providing support and concise information relating to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and other Persistent Pain conditions.

The Purple Bucket Foundation Inc. was registered in 2012 by a person living with CRPS and Persistent Pain.

The intention then was the same as it is today; provide support and concise information relating to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), and other Persistent Pain conditions.

Much has been learned since our beginning, both by us and the medical community.  More doctors know about pain treatments, we are more aware of the success of such treatments and the communication channels between those who have been diagnosed with Persistent Pain conditions, doctors and specialists are becoming more open, if not we encourage them to be so.
