Sheila Kim Purcell

Patient Leader

I am a Chronic Pain Patient, I suffer from MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Epilepsy and several other's.I have a passion for helping other's and have spent the last 4 years doing so full time. I am also a US Pain Ambassador for the US Pain Foundation. In 2012 Kentucky was hit hard by a bill known as The Pill Mill Bill.This law has made it near impossible for patients to receive any pain care much less adequate pain care. I have made this a personal mission to change this law !! Please help me and other's and stand up for what is right! Which is the right NOT to suffer due to people misusing pain medication! We did not ask for our PAIN,so do not punish each of us for the mistake of other's.
