November was PF NOW!’s birthday month! 

Thank you for allowing us to dedicate another meaningful year to our mission of using research, interactive learning, and self-monitoring to educate the public about all treatments including natural, supplemental, and alternative therapies – for treating chronic PF. If our mission resonates with you, please consider making a tax-deductible donation here

Our organization has grown significantly over the years.

In just 4 years, our services have helped countless people with or impacted by PF. This past year, we’ve reached participants in over 40 countries, published 5 research studies, and hosted 11 support group events. 

Individuals within the PF NOW! community have also grown personally this past year. 

As shown in our advocacy interviews, there are many people who have turned their fight against PF into an uplifting approach for boosting their overall health and improving their PF symptoms and quality of life

The year isn’t over yet though – there’s still time for each and every one of us to help fight this disease right NOW!
