Much more research is needed into these painful diseases and while research facilities are doing that great work, the iPain works to help patients on improving their daily activities of living with the resources available to us today. The International Pain Foundation (iPain) provides community based support services that address the immediate need of Neuropathy pain patients. Accordingly, many of our beneficiaries include patients who are economically and socially affected by these invisible diseases. Whether you have Neuropathy pain or are a caregiver, family member or friend of someone diagnosed, we’ll help you face the challenges and life changes of chronic nerve pain, head on.
The iPain coordinates events to raise money for the purpose of education enrichment, leadership training programs and support projects for chronic pain patients suffering with Neurological conditions. All of our education programs since our inception have been provided free of charge to attendees because of the donations and fundraisers we hold throughout the rest of the year. Our largest annual fundraiser being Comic Pain Relief.
Chronic pain affects the entire family and it needs to be treated that way right from the start, everyone needs to be involved as an active positive participant.
There are over 700 million people living with chronic pain, and it is not talked about much. We are trying to change that with your help! At the iPain, we know that education and knowledge can transform a person’s future. We see it happen all the time. Attending vital education events at no charge to the patient and their caregiver is vital to their access to care issues and learning tools on how to have better daily living. They do not have many places to go for support or understanding, the International Pain Foundations is one such place where we can give resources, information and assistance to people struggling with neuropathy pain on a daily basis.
The Power of Pain Foundation was originally registered as a not-for-profit founded in the state of Virginia as a 501-C-3 association. The idea for POPF was first conceived on November 23, 2006 with the mandate of providing educational, emotional and physical support that assists chronic pain patients and public awareness with Neuropathy conditions. Our 501(C)(3) status was awarded by the IRS in March, 2007. In Feb. 2015 The POPF was updated to a 501-C-3 corporation based out of Arizona and assigned a new tax id of 47-3080556 with an upgrade in the name to Power of Pain Foundation Inc. We have been growing fast and have been working internationally on projects and collaborations since 2009 and increased those efforts in 2011. As of January 1, 2016 our board of directors decided that a better way to represent what we do was upgrade our name. We are now doing charity business as International Pain Foundation (iPain).
