Holistic Pain Management (HPM) Focuses on Child Sponsorship and Education Essentials

Creating special bonds over birthdays and classroom accomplishments.

Holistic Pain Management began its partnership with Compassion in 2021 with a focus on child sponsorship. As a way to forge a strong, personal connection, CEO Ryan Shedd shares a birthday with each sponsored child. In addition, the company has funded classroom essentials for Compassion child development centers in Africa.

“Our company is built around helping others, especially the underserved,” said Ryan Shedd, CEO of Holistic Pain Management. “Partnering with Compassion is a perfect extension of our mission, and we’re so grateful to have this opportunity to impact the lives of so many children.”
