2018

Thanks to the amazing support of Hervey Bay businesses, the incredible talents of Nadia Vanek from Three Owls Body Art and Kelli McAlpine from  Healing Canvas Body Painting, we were able to demonstrate, for the first time ever, what CRPS and Persistent Pain may look like, and we received heaps of help colouring the world orange for CRPS Awareness, November 2018. In doing so many more people have learned about Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
