Let Your Light Shine So Brightly That Others Can See Their Way Out Of The Dark
"There needs to be more research"
Chantelle often shared her memories of a very difficult time in her life.
She was in America ready to begin a new adventure. Suddenly what was a swollen ankle became extremely painful, and pain relief wasn't working. The pain spread throughout her entire body and because no tests or scans showed any abnormality, no one knew what was wrong. Eventually, she was diagnosed with CRPS.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome is a disabling pain disorder that usually occurs in a limb. It is characterised by severe burning, stinging and stabbing pain that is difficult to predict or control. Complex Regional Pain Syndrome affects approximately 5,000 people in Australia annually and is responsible for considerate personal, societal and economic burdens.
Chantelle was lucky enough to find specialised treatment while in America, which helped her to recover. But the long-term effects of such a disorder are unknown. We often discussed how living with chronic pain had impacted her mental health.
For our 2nd bangle, we wanted to focus on those two factors - chronic pain and mental health.
In all aspects of her life, Chantelle bravely shared her ups and downs.
She allowed others to see themselves in her story and offered hope.
We honour Chantelle by raising money and awareness into CRPS, chronic pain and mental health. There's no greater legacy than Letting Your Light Shine So Brightly That Others Can See Their Way Out Of The Dark.
20% of every bangle sold is donated to NeuRA.
NeuRA is a leading not-for-profit medical research institute and home to 300 researchers investigating the brain and nervous system.
Under the leadership of Professor James McAuley, NeURA is currently
conducting a clinical trial for people living with CRPS. Known as the MEMOIR trial,
this research will explore two new interventions for people with CRPS – medicine
and a newly developed rehabilitation program – with the goal of unlocking an effective
treatment for people living with the condition. If successful, these treatments could
be truly life-changing.
