Central Pain Syndrome Foundation
Central Pain Syndrome (CPS) is
a neurological disorder consisting of agonizing pain signals of many differing types at once:
It has been characterized as the worst pain known to man.
It is caused by damage to or injury of the Central Nervous System (CNS), which includes the brain, brainstem and spinal cord; its causes include but are not limited to:
- Head & spinal cord injuries
It is estimated that close to 3 million people in the U.S. suffer from CPS. It is aggressive, never ending and disabling, making normal life immensely painful and incredibly difficult.
The medications and treatments used to fight it are very limited and highly ineffective. There is presently no cure.
The Central Pain Syndrome Foundation gained 501c3 status in 2015, making your donations tax deductible.

To help ensure quality medical care for those suffering from CPS;
To energize science to find a better treatments, and eventually a cure for the disease;
To improve the lives of patients, their caregivers and families;
To create a network of people dedicated to achieving these goals.
