Limerick Coffee Morning
Join us for coffee and a chat in Limerick from 11:00-1:00pm. All welcome.
We would love to see you all for a tea, coffee and goodies on Thursday 20th September in Limerick from 11 a.m. We are raising awareness of chronic pain during Pain Awareness Month and would be delighted if you could support us on the day.
During Pain Awareness Month we will be holding lots of events around the country to highlight the challenges of living with pain.
More about Chronic Pain & Pain Awareness Month
Pain is something that many of us feel, but it cannot be seen and is quickly forgotten. For those living with persistent chronic pain conditions they often feel isolated as others cannot comprehend the impact pain has on every aspect of life. Chronic pain is not visible, it often prevents people from enjoying a full life, as work, family and social life are impacted and the condition can also greatly impact on sleep.
One of the most difficult things to do is to have others understand what it is like to live with pain. This international campaign aims to draw attention to the need for better understanding of what a person with pain deals with on a daily basis, the challenges they face and society's lack of understanding about chronic pain. This is an effort to ensure that there is improved access to care and for greater education among the healthcare community and society.
What your support will achieve
Please come along and show your support and every donation on the day will help us to provide more services and support to all living with chronic pain conditions. So please get in touch with your family and friends and ask if they can come along to support us on the day.
Your time, effort, and contributions will enable us to provide support service to people and their families who are affected by chronic pain and the impact it has on every aspect of their lives.
Every year Chronic Pain Ireland supports hundreds of people and with your help we hope to reach out to the many thousands of people who are struggling. Recent statistics show that 13% of the Irish population are affected by pain and of that number 89% feel that they cannot speak to family members or friends about their condition.1 Here in Chronic Pain Ireland we make Your Pain Our Priority.
