2018 inaugural Pediatric Family Retreat Weekend
Points for Pain was started in 2015 by Tyler Cashman, a 7th grader wanting to help make a difference. In the past four years we have raised over $100,000 for the program. This money has been used to create the first ever Pediatric Take Control of Your Pain Retreat in Disney for 42 families as well as help sponsor over 100 families to the Pediatric Summer Camp. We are also excited to announce the next retreat will be in May of 2019.
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.

YOUR DONATIONS IN ACTION
Through the retreat and the camp, these children have the opportunity to just be kids and not be defined by their illnesses. U.S. Pain Foundation is honored to have partnered with TCAPP and other organizations to sponsor a Pediatric Pain Camp.
The INvisible Project creates chronic pain awareness through the photographs and stories of real people living with pain. By making visible the experiences and challenges associated with chronic pain, this campaign validates the journey while highlighting personal strength, character and courage. Visit INvisible Project tomeet some of these amazing people and hear their stories.
