Hello and thank you for your interest in Break Beatz Entertainment’s first annual Fibromyalgia Ball. We have partnered with Ghost D Productions for this event. Your DJ’s, DJ India, DJ Ghost D and DJ Spice all suffer from this illness and hope to bring awareness and understanding to the people of second life about Fibromyalgia. Many people suffer from Fibromyalgia, many know people close to them that suffer and for those who know and understand that this is a debilitating illness to which there is very little understanding or treatments that actually work.
This formal charity event will be held May 28, 2016 in conjunction with Fibromyalgia Awareness Month. All proceeds will be donated directly to the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association http://www.fmcpaware.org/. This is a 501c3 not for profit organization that works to support people who have chronic pain illnesses. Receipts will be provided once the donation is completed.
What is fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia syndrome is a common and chronic disorder characterized by widespread pain, diffuse tenderness, and a number of other symptoms. The word “fibromyalgia” comes from the Latin term for fibrous tissue (fibro) and the Greek ones for muscle (myo) and pain (algia).
Although fibromyalgia is often considered an arthritis-related condition, it is not truly a form of arthritis (a disease of the joints) because it does not cause inflammation or damage to the joints, muscles, or other tissues. Like arthritis, however, fibromyalgia can cause significant pain and fatigue, and it can interfere with a person’s ability to carry on daily activities. Also like arthritis, fibromyalgia is considered a rheumatic condition, a medical condition that impairs the joints and/or soft tissues and causes chronic pain.
