Your support can help us improve the quality of life of hundreds of thousands of British Columbians living with pain and transform how pain is recognized and treated. To date, Pain BC has done a lot with a little, effecting significant change in BC in a few short years. We're poised to deepen our impact. With your support, we can build on our early wins, expand our reach, and increase our capacity to improve the lives of people living with pain.
"Pain BC provided caring and compassion in my family's time of greatest darkness and need — a time when my father spoke openly of wanting to end his life because of his excruciating and unending pain. Pain BC offered us the best pain management resources available, sage advice, and perhaps most importantly, a sense of hope. I'm afraid to think where we would be today had they not been there for us when no one else could help us or seemed to care. Pain BC is the only organization working at various levels to bring attention to this critical issue and to bring about real change — we experienced it firsthand. It was Pain BC who restored my father's faith and confidence that help existed."— Gerald R., family member
"Through the efforts of Pain BC, real progress is being made reducing the burden of pain in our province. It has become the 'go to' organization for health care providers and decision makers working on this issue and a much-needed voice for people with pain and their caregivers. Pain BC has been successful because of the clarity of its purpose, the passion of its members, the vision of its leaders, and its credibility with decision makers. It is a nimble, lean and highly adaptable organization driven by a singular desire — to improve the lives of people suffering with lifedepleting pain."— Dr. Brenda Lau, MD, FRCPC, FFPMANZCA, MM, CGIMS - Founder, CHANGEpain Clinic; Founder, Royal College Pain Medicine Subspecialty Program; Clinical Associate Professor, University of British Columbia
