There are many organizations and groups around the world that raise funds for research. There are many organizations and groups around the world that raise awareness for illnesses.

But there are not many organizations and groups that give to individuals with a serious illness with no strings attached.

Fighting 4 Us gives two ways. The Fighter of the Year and the Andrea Gianopoulos Memorial Scholarship awards are given annually to individuals who suffer from RSD or CRSP.

The Fighter of the Year award is given so someone suffering from RSD. The winner can do with it whatever they choose – pay bills, go on a trip, buy new clothes or take their caregivers out to dinner.

The Andrea Gianopoulos Memorial Scholarship is given to individuals who want to further their education despite RSD.

These were Andrea’s goals and we will continue to keep her dream alive. Please read more about each award on its individual page. You will also find information on how to apply.
