The National Pain Foundation (NPF), a nonprofit organization, was founded in 1998 to advance the functional recovery of pain patients through education and support.

The intent of the site is to sensitize people to what it's like to grow up with a medical problem. Too often, youngsters so affected must cope with stigma as well as with their medical conditions. Teasing often accompanies this stigma, and adds a layer of pain to their experience of childhood. Unnecessary pain. Pain that isolates. Pain that affects not only the children who look or act or even just feel different, but all of the children in the classroom.

BASE Camp Children's Cancer Foundation

B.A.S.E. Camp has a two fold meaning; First it is an acronym for Believe, Achieve, Support, and Educate; Second it symbolizes the encampment that is set up at the base of a mountain that is about to be climbed. We feel that AIDS/HIV, cancer, sickle cell anemia, hemophilia and other rare/orphan hematology diseases are just such mountains in children’s lives. Our members are patients, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters. Different from once in a lifetime wish organization or annual camps, B.A.S.E. Camp makes a difference in children’s lives on a regular basis. Our programs focus on "being normal," participating in peer groups that children who are not affected by life challenging illnesses take for granted.
