Peripheral neuropathy is a 24/7/365 battle for more than 20 million people in the U.S. Until we find better treatments and cures for neuropathy, every week is Neuropathy Week, every day is Neuropathy Day. Everyone who has or cares about someone with neuropathy has got to be counted as someone who cares about the issues facing the neuropathy community.

At the recommendation of The Neuropathy Association—since 2005—the third week of May is held for us on the federal government's official Calendar of National Health Observances. This year's observance will take place May 16–20, 2011. Visit in the coming weeks for information on National Neuropathy Week events, media opportunities, and other ways to get involved.
