Persistent pain takes a significant toll on a person’s quality of life. People living with pain often experience adverse effects on their mental and physical health, their relationships with family and friends, and their ability to work and take part in activities they enjoy. But with the right support, pain doesn't have to be a barrier to living a full life.
Your gift to Pain BC will help improve the quality of life for the 1 in 5 British Columbians living with pain and will allow us to transform the way pain is recognized and treated in BC and beyond.
Pain BC is a registered charity dedicated to improving the lives of people in pain through education, empowerment and innovation. Please help us make a difference in the lives of people with pain.
