Preserve the quality of life, dignity and functionality of people with chronic intractable pain and the disabled by raising public and legislative awareness through education; defend, improve and advocate for the rights of those with painful chronic diseases , the disabled and their healthcare providers through legislative efforts and provide resources to those who despite successfully managing and their usual budget, have experienced and unexpected expense or medical need, requiring assistance to get back on track to maintain their independence. APDF also provides financial and other resources to enable those wishing to participate in legislative, educational and advocacy opportunities who are otherwise unable to attend. Our vision includes encouraging and enabling self-advocacy: maintaining their highest level of functioning possible; stopping the stigma surrounding those with chronic pain and disabilities and encouraging that they be treated with respect so they can retain their dignity.
