responses to color the world orange 2016

Wearing a color may not seem like a lot to some people, but to me it means support. [By wearing orange, you are] being an advocate for me and others with CRPS by sending a message saying this exists. You’re spreading knowledge towards this and therefore helping making a change…I’m grateful to have so many people…right by my side. #CRPSORANGEDAY
— Mari, 16 years old, Texas
Participating in this day of visibility and awareness has meant a lot to me as a patient of this disease, since many people have mobilized and we have received a lot of affection.
— Noemi, Spain
Living in a rural area, we don’t know other people who suffer from RSD like my teen daughter does. This event has shown us that she isn’t alone, which has had an amazing impact on her state of mind. What a wonderful thing!
— Marcie, Pennsylvania
We are in this fight together. I share many posts on your page. I really like to follow you.

What a great success we had today! Thank you for all of your hard work. I think this is the most exposure RSD/CRPS has ever had. Kudos to everyone!
— Donna in New Jersey
I’m so happy that we sufferers can spread awareness about this terrible disorder. I’m glad to say that I proudly wore my orange today and have been advocating and educating people all day. It’s been amazing to see how many people are genuinely interested in learning how to help. Thank you for helping us spread the word and I hope one day we will have a cure.
— Angie from Tennessee
Thank you for getting the word out about RSD. As someone who has dealt with RSD and all that comes with it for over a decade, it was empowering to see all of that orange…There are so many walks, dedicated days, etc. for other terrible diseases. Unless we all speak up, RSD will remain an invisible disease. Monday’s event was a long time coming. Thank you.
— Beck from NY
You’re so very appreciated by many. What you’re doing and sharing means tons to all of us; thank you. Seeing that on your page meant the world to me and for a few minutes made me forget I had pain. Thank you.
