| Do you have Fibromyalgia or know someone that does?
The Fibromyalgia Well Spring Foundation is a registered charitable society created to help fibromyalgia sufferers to lead a more rewarding life.
The cause is unknown, diagnosis can be controversial, and symptoms can be mistaken for other illnesses - widespread pain in the muscles, ligaments and tendons, fatigue and depression. There is no known cause or cure for Fibromyalgia, which affects a small percentage of Canadians, but can have chronic, debilitating symptoms. Patients can suffer from constant pain, migraines and numbness, making simple daily tasks difficult or even impossible to bear.
The Foundation is running Support Groups in the Lower Mainland of B.C. that are held in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Langley and Surrey. Members and volunteers donate their time to run support groups, fundraise, do maintenance on the home of sufferers and building(s) the Foundation owns. The need for suport grows daily.
