The Fight the Flame Support Group was established in Charlotte shortly after we began holding the annual 5k races.
We meet the 2nd Saturday of each month from 1-3pm.
Each month we discuss a different subject – topics are suggested by group members. Topics range from: traveling with CRPS; helping through the holidays; alternative treatments; etc. We bring in guest speakers, have workshops, and more.
Our members are very diverse. We have members who have had CRPS for 6 months – 30 years; men/woman; some right here from Charlotte, and others who drive almost 3 hours for each meeting. We have new people join us almost each session.
At every meeting, caregivers (spouses, partners, etc) are always welcome to be a part of our meetings. The location is subject to change but will always be announced in emails and social media.
