Having children with Congenital Insensitivity to Pain(CIPA) made us realize that pain and sweat, which are uncomfortable for normal people, have important protective functions in ourlives. In 1993, three families including three patients from the Kanto district of Japan started a group named “Tomorrow”, with the Japan Association of Patients with CIPA. We are fortunate to have the outstanding support and cooperation of many specialists including doctors, welfare officers, psychologists, physical therapists, teachers, other parent groups, and volunteers. There assistance has enabled the Tomorrow group to conduct annual symposia, provide annual medical examinations and publish handbooks for people dealing with CIPA.
