Gai, a part-time carer for someone living with chronic pain, has been helping The Purple Bucket Foundation Inc., and its founders, in a number of ways for a couple of years, deciding to put herself forward for nomination to the committee as her passion to help to raise awareness make a difference increased the more involved she became.

Sue, a mother, wife, nurse and carer to both her daughter with CRPS and her husband with chronic pain. Sue knows only too well the hardship, and heartache carers face every day as they juggle life and their extra responsibilities. We look forward to Sue's experience and knowledge.
The Purple Bucket Foundation Inc. proudly support the ongoing research of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) with donations to CRPS research projects at UniSA / Body in Mind.
Lyn, our other Chronic Pain representative, is an Anaesthetic nurse. Lyn suffers from and helps treat people with Chronic Pain. Since learning about CRPS and TPBF Lyn has become extremely passionate about helping to raise awareness and doing what she can to make a difference.
My name stems from the abbreviation ‘Bucket Of Hope’. As The Purple Bucket Team Mascot, my job (like everyone else’s) is to help raise awareness! I tend to pop up spontaneously anywhere I choose - Keep your eyes peeled! Although I’m continuously on a new adventure, my mission remains the same: to raise awareness about CRPS, chronic pain and The Purple Bucket Foundation.
