Points for Pain is a fundraiser to benefit the U.S. Pain Foundation’s Pediatric Pain Program.
The program includes Pediatric Take Control of Your Pain Retreats, scholarships to a Pediatric Pain Camp, an INvisible Project magazine, and other vital services. This campaign’s goal is to help raise awareness and funds for children living with chronic pain.
Points for Pain was started in 2015 by Tyler Cashman, a 7th grader wanting to help make a difference. In the past four years, it has raised over $100,000 for the program. This money has been used to host multiple Pediatric Pain Warrior weekend retreats as well as help sponsor over 100 families to the Pediatric Summer Camp.
Children living with chronic pain face challenges every day. Every minute needs to be planned out and accounted for as much as possible to eliminate the daily stresses that could cause a “flare up.” Even going to school – for a full day, a half day, or a few hours – can be difficult.
