Screen Shot 2015-11-07 at 12.13.45 AMThere is no cure for fibromyalgia (sometimes called fibromyalgia syndrome, fibromyositis, or fibrositis) and experts aren’t even completely sure what causes it. The symptoms come and go almost randomly, but when they’re present they can be debilitating. His sister’s pain wasn’t lost on Dominique. “Watching her go through so much pain and seeing how much it affected her life moved me,” he says. Wanting to do something to help, he started a foundation, Easley’s Awareness to work towards a cure and help raise awareness and funds for Fibromyalgia research and education. Dominique realized through his position as a professional football player that Fibro Warriors lacked a trusted voice and Dominique along with this baby sister became that voice for so many who suffer from “invisible diseases” and are denied health care access, are told ‘it’s all in your heard’ and even called lazy.

When asked what influenced him to start this campaign, Dominique responded, “It was frustrating seeing my sister in pain. As a football player, I’m empathetic to pain day in and day out; but I signed up for this. My baby sister is still a kid in my eyes and she didn’t sign up for pain that keeps her from living. It just isn’t fair’ in college I remember sitting on a plane going home after a victory, but I couldn’t even enjoy it because in between all the congrats text I find out my sister can’t walk and is crying in the hospital from pain and the doctors can’t do anything about it. I saw her in crutches and felt guilty that I wasn’t there to carry her. I swore then that when I had the ability I was going to do what ever it takes to get rid of her pain.” and that’s just what Dominique is doing.
