Becca has been an extremely active advocate for the past nine years, using her voice and experience to help all chronic pain patients. Becca has testified at the Massachusetts State House in favor of legislation that helps the chronic pain community, such as ensuring that treating their pain is considered a right, and against bills that negatively affect patients, such as those making it harder for patients to access the treatments they need, especially opioid medications. Becca has also been involved in multiple television and print news interviews locally to raise awareness about chronic pain and state advocacy efforts.
