On July 16th, APF President's Award recipient, Terri Witter was featured on a local news segment. Ms. Witter, who lives in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, spoke with KTUL about the difficulties she has faced in the years since the opioid epidemic began. Witter discusses the accusations she has faced, along with the pain she now suffers from.
"The pain medicine has been tampered down so far that I don't have much quality of life. It's hard for me to get out," said Witter.
Unfortunately, this is the reality for too many patients who suffer from acute porphyria. The APF has been actively advocating on behalf of our patients so we can change this narrative.
Thank you Terri for using your voice to shed light on the other side of the crisis and help so many who deal with the same struggles!!
