Dear members, followers, loved ones and friends,
Due to Covid-19 , our usual fundraiser and fundraising activities did not take place . As such, our funds are exhausted and it is becoming extremely difficult to keep our invaluable organisation going . This year we have additional printing and distribution costs for our new erythromelalgia brochure , our EM-related fact sheets (SFN , facial, genital, weight loss, sexual relationships etc.), and for our updated eye-catching, highly informative erythromelalgia leaflets .
We also need to fund our free support & information services and our awareness resources. Our erythromelalgia leaflets are provided free of charge to sufferers, loved ones , students, and medical professionals worldwide. They are distributed in numerous countries as possible as part of our very successful Global EM Awareness Campaign and they are supplied to schools, colleges, and universities in our Education Project. Covid may have stopped our fundraising but we still managed to distribute nearly 15,000 erythromelalgia leaflets in 12 countries, which was no easy feat!. Website hosting , research subscriptions, postage, stationary , support calls , resources and other miscellaneous costs also need financing.
If you are a member, you will already know that we do not charge memberships or hassle for donations throughout the year ; in fact, we hate asking for money, but we desperately need funds! If you have recently joined or are not yet a member, here are just a few of our services and resources : free solutions focused support and information, an extensive research library ( we subscribe) , a large doctor's database (global) - updated monthly, access to a range of up-to-date highly educational EM-related topics, polls , facts , confidential email service, support calls , and expert knowledge unavailable elsewhere. More importantly, we offer understanding, compassion, solidarity, and friendship .
We share and impart knowledge across multiple online platforms as well as offline outreach services and empower those touched by erythromelalgia by facilitating the tools for self -advocacy. We guide those living with EM through the diagnostic process and work-up. We educate on how best to manage symptoms and flares, recommend tests , treatment options, best drug protocols , and keep you informed regarding clinical trials . We help members prepare for their consultations and even offer a one-to-one personalised email service to discuss and answer questions. We provide tips and strategies on how to manage erythromelalgia covering lifestyle changes, ways to minimise triggers and optimal cooling strategies as well as inform members about concurrent conditions and comorbidity. We even give support calls! .
The EM Warriors run exciting online events and activities where members can win a fabulous t-shirt, hoody, Chillow pillow or one of many other fantastic freebies. Our admin team all have erythromelalgia too, but they work hard every day to provide every single member , parent, medical professional and loved one with an awesome top-notch service . We desperately want to keep that service free!
