The Glass Ball Foundation serves those with life-disrupting, physically painful long-term conditions who cannot afford the expense needed to get healthy, regardless of diagnosis, treatment style, or demographic. This list of ailments includes but is not limited to autoimmune disease, systemic infections, toxicity, and other painful chronic conditions.
There are far too many subjected to live a lower quality of life caused by longstanding debilitating pain conditions simply because they do not have financial access to the therapies and treatments that will improve their lives. In this situation, healthcare becomes a monetary burden. This often leads to sub-par management of the chronic pain condition (and even multiple conditions) with little hope of true quality of life with reduced to no pain.
It is our vision that those living with long-term life-disrupting physical pain conditions not suffer due to inability to gain control over their health, and that the impact of their chronic conditions will lessen to no more than a 'bump in the road’.
