Dear <TITLE> <LAST NAME>:
On behalf of the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association and all who suffer with fibromyalgia, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank you for recognizing May 12, 20__ as Fibromyalgia Awareness Day in CITY, STATE.
Without the support and recognition of elected officials, the fibromyalgia community’s daily battle with pain and fatigue would go unnoticed. With an estimated 10 million Americans suffering from fibromyalgia, we are at a crossroads in research. We must strive to continually make health practitioners aware of our plight. It is only with this recognition that we will be successful in securing research funds to pinpoint the causes of fibromyalgia, and start toward finding a cure.
By enlisting the support of elected officials across the country, we ensure the steady growth of awareness. It is our hope that one day, “fibromyalgia” will be a household word. We will no longer have to suffer indignities at the hands of callous employers or uninformed family members. Like so many patient populations have before us, we will have gained the respect of the general public and the medical community.
Thank you again for joining us in this cause.
