American Pain Foundation

The American Pain Foundation and the Health Central Network have once again collaborated for the second annual"Pain and Creativity Exhibit" to give those with chronic pain a way to express their pain through music, writing, still life, video, quilt blocks, and artwork. Selected participants will be highlighted through video, online and print to share their stories of pain.

If you are a quilter who expresses your pain or a loved ones pain through quilting the APF urges you to send in an unfinished 10" by 10" unquilted block to be added to the "Pain Quilt." The deadline is August 15 and you can learn more information at

Deadline for other forms of expressions of pain through art is September 15, 2008 and you can find more information at

If you or someone you know has chronic pain the American Pain Foundation is a wonderful source of information, treatment options and support. You don't have to do it alone...
