We announced PainDoctor.com’s #PainDoctorCares Giveaway earlier on the blog and, since then, have received more than a few questions about how to sign up, what entry requirements there are, and how long the contest runs. We bundled these together with answers to the most frequently asked questions. If you have any other questions that aren’t covered here, send us a quick email!

1. Yes, we really are giving away $5,000 to one pain patient. Seriously. 

 

Our very own Dr. Tory McJunkin, along with the entire Arizona Pain Foundation, was instrumental in creating the #PainDoctorCares Giveaway. Through a donation by the Foundation, Pain Doctor will be able to give one patient the help they need, just in time for Christmas.

As Dr. McJunkin notes in the following video:

“The Arizona Pain Foundation is a foundation that gives a portion of profits back to people with chronic pain for medical issues around the world, and for missions around the world. And the Board members took a vote and they decided, yeah this sounds like a good cause. We could help somebody who is suffering, who’s really been through it, and who needs a boost in their life right now.”

2. If you’re a pain patient in the U.S. who is 18 years or older, you can probably apply for the #PainDoctorCares Giveaway. 

We felt it was important to create a contest that was as inclusive as possible. Because of that, we have fairly open contest entrant requirements. At the minimum, entrants must be 18 years or older and legal residents of the U.S. The winner must also be willing to provide PainDoctor.com with copies of health information, for authentication purposes only.

You can read our full Official Contest Rules for more information about entry requirements.

3. You can sign up until November 30, 2015. 

The #PainDoctorCares Giveaway will be open to new entries until November 30. Feel free to sign up for the contest any time before then!

4. One winner will be announced on December 23, 2015. 

One winner will be announced just in time for Christmas. This is a symbolic way for us to bridge the time between the activism of Pain Awareness Month in September and giving spirit of the holiday season. The winner will be chosen completely at random.

5. We know $5,000 can’t cure even one person’s pain, but we hope it can help lessen the impact it has on their life. 

On PainDoctor.com, we discussed why we felt it was important to hold this giveaway. As we noted:

“We know the impact chronic pain can have on a person. It affects every aspect of life, from health to relationships to work. It also creates a financial burden that patients have to carry. While we can’t provide a gift like this to all patients in pain, we can help one person in need.”

$5,000 will never be enough. The time we spend fighting against pain for our patients will never be enough. The hours you spend fighting your own pain may never be enough. However, we hope with this one gift that we can create some lightness and provide help for one pain patient in need. It’s part of our commitment to changing lives here at Arizona Pain.

Learn more about why this is important to us by watching Dr. Paul Lynch’s video below.
