The proceeds of this shirt campaign are to help get my organization, hope.dance off the ground. I'm hoping to sell 200 shirts to offset the costs of creating the legal entity and to fund travel to meet with experts in adaptive dance so that I can start to model my dance classes for sufferers of pain disorders.
I am starting this organization because of the profound impact ballet and tap have had on my life and experience with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, a rare and incurable disease that causes intense, chronic pain. Since coming back to dance, I have improved balance, strength and function as well as improved my mental health.
