As we are entering August, fall is just around the corner! It is time for our 2nd ANNUAL SCARF DRIVE!! We are collecting crocheted and knitted scarves to send out to each of our 185 and counting FEROCIOUS FIGHTERS in October 2016...this is to get ready for our November CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) AWARENESS MONTH. We are looking for scarves that are Orange, Orange/Black, and/or flame pattern. Please contact us or visit our Facebook Page (Ferocious Fighters) for more information! Thank you for your dedicated time to let kids with CRPS know they are NEVER ALONE!! We are now in September, and still seeking committed volunteers to create crocheted or knitted scarves for these kids fighting CRPS!! As far as we can tell, we are nowhere close to the now 190 on our list!! PLEASE HELP US by spreading the word to anyone you know who would be interested. DO YOU HAVE SOME SCARVES COMPLETED?? Please start sending them in so we have them by the 1st WEEK OF OCTOBER and can get a count!! Thank you for you volunteeering with Ferocious Fighters.

How Many Care Packages Have We Sent?
TOTALLY AMAZING WORK!! Pretty awesome, huh?
THANK YOU DONORS, VOLUNTEERS...KIDS AND ADULTS ALIKE!!
But, guess what? We still have kids on the waiting list!
We need your help to support Patrick's dream of helping all the kids out there diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) to know that they are not alone in this battle!
Ferocious Fighters is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dreamed up by Patrick Boland when he was 9 years old. You can learn more about the people and events that lead up to it's creation on our About Us page.
If you are a parent with a young person (0-21) with CRPS - Nominate them for a care package!
Please, join us in working to make sure that people know what CRPS is and help us provide some measure of comfort or moments of joy to kids and teens who are fighting this disease with every breath.
Please check out the tabs at the top of this page to find information about the care/comfort packages, current fundraising efforts, ways to support us in this mission, and means to make a donation!
