Richard is a patient advisor for Intake.me and an online advocate for other people with chronic pain. Richard was also a caregiver to his mom, Carol, who recently passed away and is co-caregiver for his disabled brother-in-law, Robert. Richard writes about how he deals with his own health issues while caregiving in his blog PickYourPain.org.
