Final Day to help support Fibromyalgia Awareness and research!

More Info

Hey Everybody! My name is Christopher Claffey! I'm raising money for Fibromyalgia Awareness and treatments. All the money raised will be going straight to the Mayo Clinic. This disease to me, is very personal. Shortly after my girlfriend and I began dating, she was diagnosed with Fibro. According to the Mayo Clinic "Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals."

Without a doubt, it is hard to watch someone you love be in pain every single day. What makes it worse is the fact that many people have absolutely no idea what Fibro is. This is an invisible illness. If you looked at my girlfriend, she would look perfectly healthy. You would have no idea she was surrounded by pain every second of everyday.

Although I don't have Fibro, I know many Americans suffer from it. I would do anything to help stop my girlfriend's pain. Although there is no cure for Fibro, with your help, maybe we could find one. Anything is possible. But if we can't find a cure, maybe we could find better treatments. They don't have to be in pain. You can help, and it doesn't have to stay invisible.
