Warm Wishes for a Wonderful Holiday

The NFA wishes you a pain-free holiday full of peace, joy and comfort. It is so easy to get distracted this time of year, and let our health suffer. This month's newsletter has just the things you need to keep you on track this holiday. May this season find you well and leave you renewed and ready to face the New Year!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from all of us here at the NFA!

Together We Thrive

Holiday cheerfulness can be a bitter pill to swallow when we feel isolated, depressed and generally bad. That's why we know that together we are better. Even if it's two of us chatting on a phone call, or a whole bunch of us spoonies supporting each other on Facebook. This is the article to read to help you face the holiday in good spirits.

Thank you to everyone who donated! There is still time. 
Because of you, we were able to raise 54% of our year-end goal. Because of you we WILL be able to help our 70,000 members, 700 daily website visitors, and over 250,000 Facebook followers receive the benefits of the NFA. We will continue to support FM research, post up-to-date articles and start to engage our audience in Spanish.
