FARNY is the Fibromyalgia Association of Rochester New York.

FARNY was founded in the spring of 1993 to educate and inform others about Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS), as well as to serve as a support system. All of the founding members, as well as, the majority of our general membership, have FMS.

We formed this organization out of our own search for information and answers to the painful and frustrating condition in which we found ourselves. Our continuing goal is to educate, inform and support those with FMS, their families and friends. Our long-term goal is to join in the movement for research dollars and legislation to help those with FMS.

So, whether you are actively seeking a diagnosis for FMS or have already been diagnosed, we are here. If you have had FMS symptoms for years or are just beginning to have symptoms, we are here. If you are in remission or in the middle of a severe flare-up, we are here. If you are ready to take an active role in your treatment or just need a shoulder to lean on, we are here. You are not alone. We have been where you are!

Let us help

FARNY’S focus is on enabling Fibro folks and their families and friends to increase their life-enhancing optimism and their Awareness of traditional and complementary treatments for Re-creation of a New, healthier, more positive You; putting into perspective what you can do to live and enjoy life to the fullest of  your abilities.
