When CVSA was founded in 1993, it was thought that CVS was a condition of childhood and adolescence. Now we know that adults also suffer from CVS. There is CVS that begins in childhood and may extend into adulthood and adult onset CVS. As so many adults can attest, the condition causes untold suffering and disability, and often leads to family, school, and career upheaval.
With children’s guidelines already in place thanks to CVSA fundraising and our strong medical team, we are embarking on a partnership project that will help adult sufferers around the world. Partnering with the the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society (ANMS), a strong medical committee will be formed to develop guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of CVS in adults. When completed, these guidelines will help doctors and ER personnel around the world understand how to better care for CVS patients.
Creating medical guidelines is expensive, and that’s where you come in. CVSA is the financial sponsor for this project, but we are asking you to help us fund the project. Any amount will help!
