The American Fibromyalgia Syndrome Association, Inc.
The American Fibromyalgia Syndrome Association’s (AFSA) primary mission is to fund superior quality, scientific studies on fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS), which is an extremely painful, fatiguing, and often debilitating medical condition. Studies show that FMS affects 3-5% of the general population.
National Fibromyalgia Association
With Lynne’s new company on the horizon, the NFA’s role as a non-profit organization representing the 10 million people with FM has become even more important. The NFA will always be the community’s “advocate.” As a non-profit, the NFA has continued to act on behalf of the patients, making sure they have a voice and ways to build awareness, and as a long standing, reputable organization that has the credibility to ensure that the patients’ needs are communicated and met.
Fibromyalgia Care Society of America
Founded in 2015, the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America (FCSA) is devoted to revolutionizing how fibromyalgia is cared for in this country by introducing a comprehensive holistic approach to care, family supports and support groups. The organization was founded by Mildred Velez, who has been living with fibromyalgia since 2007, in response to the lack of direct services for those living with fibromyalgia and to the dearth of dedicated medical care and support. Mildred, along with a dedicated board of trustees, has developed a concise and direct approach to helping those living with fibromyalgia and their families.
