(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS sophomore Morgan Trevithick suffers from an illness called Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Trevithick developed this illness from a running injury she endured over two years ago. It causes extreme pain 24/7 due to her nervous system (parasympathetic and sympathetic) being hypersensitive.
November 6 was National Color the World Orange Day, which raises awareness for CRPS and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) sufferers. Morgan’s sister Taylor organized a surprise for her on this day. She was able to get many students and staff to participate and wear orange shirts and bracelets.
Trevithick was completely shocked. “I had no idea that the surprise was happening, it was great to walk into school seeing everyone in their orange.”
To pull of this surprise, Taylor had to remove Morgan from club Remind 101’s and block her from viewing Snapchat and Instagram stories where she promoted the cause.
