Samantha Harber Golf Tournament
To date the CRPS Sam Harber Golf Tourney has raised nearly $73,000 for CRPS (complex regional pain syndrome) research as well as for the Brad Jenkins Fund for families who are unable to afford appropriate treatment. None of your contributions have gone towards administrative costs – 100% of the funds raised have been presented to the National RSDSA Foundation and will be divided equally, per Sam's request, between CRPS research and The Brad Jenkins fund to help those in greatest need of medical intervention.
Without each and every one of you that contributed to this event we would not have been able to reach yet far exceed all our goals to help those with CRPS. With your help we have been able to raise awareness for this rare and debilitating disease. All together we have brought noise to the silent suffering that CRPS causes. We cannot thank everyone enough for your contributions, your generosity is incomprehensible.
We would like to extend a very special thank you to our Elite and Platinum Sponsors - Regency Home HealthCare, Power Play Retail, Trimble Transportation, and Quantum Merchant Services. There are so many others to thank for the success of our event! Our participants, our sponsors, our donors, our volunteers, our dinner guests, Riverwood National and of course Stephanie Johnson for her determination and dedication to bring awareness to CRPS. That’s another year on the books and another rush of complete gratitude for your help in changing the future for CRPS sufferers. Because of you there is hope! Thank you for your part in helping us PUT OUT THE FLAME NOW!
About Samantha Harber
As a result of surgery for a torn ACL, in August of 2012, now 20-year-old Samantha was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome. CRPS is a chronic pain condition in which her nervous system is hypersensitive and nerves misfire sending pain signals resulting in constant burning, stabbing pain, convulsions as well as joint, skin and circulatory complications. This disease is on the National Organization of Rare Disorders and why it is so important to raise awareness.
Sam has been through more in the last six years then most of us and has had to endure in a lifetime. She has great strength, courage and a passion to make a difference in the lives of those that struggle with CRPS. In honor of Samantha, we will be hosting the 6th annual Sam Harber golf tourney to help raise funds for research, families in need of financial assistance affected by this condition, and raising awareness for CRPS.
There is No Cure for CRPS
Sam has sought treatment from some of the top doctors at the University of Minnesota, Rochester Mayo, Boston Children's, MAPS Pain Clinic, and most recently returned back to the University of Minnesota. She has had sympathetic nerve blocks, taken a multitude of medications, several surgeries, participated in a 3-week pain rehab program at Mayo, multiple hospitalizations, acupuncture, ongoing physical therapy, and placement of a spinal cord stimulator at the end of June 2014 to aid in pain reduction. Sam continued to have complications from a surgery in 2015. She is still learning how to live with the horrible disease.
