Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

For Grace - Cynthia Toussaint

15 Apr 2013For Grace is a website founded by Cynthia Toussaint. Cynthia was a Ballerina and for the past 30 years has suffered from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Cynthia now has Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Cynthia's website: gives a voice and a support to those experiencing pain.

I have a cousin in Malta who has Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. At present she is bedridden and does not eat, drink or talk much at all. Her parents feel great anguish and despair as to what they can do for their daughter. My heart goes out to them all and anyone else experiencing this debilitating syndrome. My hope is that awareness produces understanding and some research into a cure.
