McGinnis (my service dog) and I (Donna) invite you to the RSDSA Fundraiser on Saturday, October 27, 2012. This benefit will provide research grants through the Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome Association. As someone who has become disabled because of RSDS and who deals with the pain and daily challenges, I know how important RSDS/CRPS research is. Please join us for a fun evening at The Cubby Bear, 21661 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Lincolnshire, Illinois 60069, at 7 PM. Enjoy a buffet dinner with raffles, a silent auction, and a band. Please make checks payable to: RSDSA in the amount of $45.00 per person by October 13,2012. Donations are also appreciated. RSDS Attn. Donna Feldman P.O. Box 7164 Deerfield, IL 60015 Sincerely yours, Donna Feldman & my assistant at Cubby Bear North, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome/ Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome is a neurological disease that was first diagnosed during the Civil War. This heinous disease can destroy the bones, muscles skin, and veins. It is usually the result of a minor trauma to the body! The pain is magnified many times beyond what the injury would produce. Anyone can get RSDS. You can be very healthy. After a minor trauma to your body (ex: strain ankle, breaking a fall with your hand), the injury heals but the RSDS is there. There are approximately 1.5 million KNOWN people in the USA suffering from RSDS yet it is still considered an orphan disease. Four (4) women to one man (1) get it. Most people, including medical practitioners, have no knowledge of it. As a result of this,many people suffer without being properly diagnosed. This fundraiser is the bring awareness to the public while raising money for research grants. Please help to get the word out.
