Without the Power of Pain Foundation and the things Barby and Ken have created I would not be getting the treatment and be with the doctors that I am with.

I nominate Barby Ingle, because she goes Above & Beyond to raise Awareness for Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy "RSD". Myself & my 15 year old daughter who also suffers with RSD had the pleasure of meeting Barby Ingle at the Quench The Fire Run 2013. Barby Ingle was very kind to us. My daughter was having pain that day & meeting Barby made my daughter smile.  — Sophie

Barby is the one of the most active Facebook users I know. She has 5000 friends and takes pride in sharing things of importance along with feel good things.

Congratulations to Barby for a job well done and to keep up the great work.  — Ken

Barby posts blogs on chronic pain and life issues on her blog and so many check in to see what she has to say. She knows the value of sharing her story and how it makes a difference in her life and others to do so. She also encourages others to share their story. The more we share the more we learn. She has great info, awareness and life goals.  — Ken

Barby became an advocate for herself and others because of it taking about 3 years and 43 providers before the right provider was able to help. On average it takes 6 providers to get chronic pain issues correctly diagnosed & even more to get proper treatment. What do you do in the meantime, many like myself follow Barby's voice to change the system  — Ken

Barby is great at key phrasing and getting her points across in short amazing 140 charter messages.
