National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day May 12, 2011

The Walk to Cure FM: National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day 2011

CURE FMCampaign for Understanding, Research, and Education of FM.

Every May 12 is National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. Traditionally it has been sponsored by the National Fibromyalgia Association:
Since its inception in 1997, the National Fibromyalgia Association (NFA) has been the organization leading the call for increased recognition of fibromyalgia. In honor of National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day commemorated each May 12th, the NFA has staged groundbreaking national and international events in an effort to increase awareness of chronic pain illnesses including fibromyalgia. Awareness Day seeks to help patients and organizations educate the general public, healthcare professionals, government officials, and legislative bodies.
 However, with the shake-up between two national Fibromyalgia organizations the campaign has been taken over by National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association:
For 2011, the NFA is proud to support the Awareness Day campaign efforts of the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association. Their inaugural theme is ‘WALK TO CURE FM.” For more information on how you may get involved, please visit their website at
