Share the Facts for Peripheral Neuropathy Awareness

Share the Facts!

Help increase awareness of peripheral neuropathy by sharing key facts with your social networks and your community, during Peripheral Neuropathy Awareness week (May 6- May 12, 2018) and beyond.

An estimated 30 million people in the United States alone experience symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, and even more people worldwide.   And yet, it is still a secret disease: no one has heard of it, not enough treatments are available for it, and not enough funding is being made available for research on it.
