Conference is latest step for campaigner

27 October 2006

THE first UK conference on Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, organised by a brave Whittlesey woman who has the condition, will take place in December.

Trudy Lapinskis, of Stonald Avenue, is behind the conference, to be chaired by North-East Cambridgeshire MP Malcolm Moss, at the Central Methodist Hall, Westminster, on December 5.

Miss Lapinskis has attracted prominent speakers from all round the world, who will outline movement disorders, how to manage CRPS and early diagnosis of the extremely rare condition.

She was diagnosed with CRPS in 1994, after knocking her back on the corner of a table, and is believed to be one of the worst cases in the country. Complications meant she had her foot amputated.

She has been campaigning to raise awareness among healthcare professionals and handed a petition to 10 Downing Street last July.
