Outreach Event Brings Joy

On Friday, July 18th, 2014 TCAPP kicked off it's first outreach event in Virginia.   Families gathered at All Fired Up in Richmond, and showed off their creativity by painting beautiful pieces of pottery.  It was a nice, relaxing activity, that allowed for great conversation, laughter and fun.  A great time was had by all. 

One mom commented, "I had one happy child tonight. She and I had a wonderful time and would love to see you all again soon!"

While another mom said " My girls had a fantastic time (as did I!)! I honestly don't recall the last time I heard them both repeat that they had such a good time so many times in a row in such a short period of time over anything."

It was so nice to see the kids enjoying themselves.  Despite their daily medical challenges and chronic pain, they put on a smile, simply wanting to be kids and do kid things.  An event like this gives them that sense of normalcy.

VA TCAPP Outreach is already planning their next get together!   Check out some pictures here.

Alone We Are Rare, Together We Are Strong

An important part of TCAPP’s mission is to bring together families of children dealing with chronic pain.  The Outreach Program was born with this initiative in mind, and we hope to grow it to include every state.

State Ambassadors have volunteered to be someone to contact if you have questions and they are available to help point families in the right direction.  They will also be putting together several gatherings throughout the year to give us a way to connect.  This community will grow stronger with every person who wants to help – if you are interested in being involved, please contact the ambassador in your state.  And, don’t forget to subscribe to the RSS feed to keep up-to-date on what is happening.
