Sylvia Donley, BScN MN is the past president of the Calgary Neuropathy Association.  Sharing her knowledge and personal experience has become a passion and focus for Sylvia.  She believes in the importance of connecting with those living with neuropathy, their family, friends and health care providers. 

 Sylvia joined the Calgary Neuropathy Association as a member in 2008 and became President of the Association in 2010 when founder Val Shaw-Lewis stepped down.  It has been important to Sylvia that the CNA belong to its members and encourages their involvement. 

Sylvia worked as a RN completing her BScN following an impact injury to her knee.  Post-op, Sylvia was diagnosed with RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy).  RSD is a fairly rare neurological disorder more recently referred to as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS).   Sylvia has also been rear ended (motor vehicle accidents) several times with both structural and nerve damage to her spine causing nerve damage to the right eye (Third Nerve Damage) and RSD to the right arm.  It was after the first car accident that Sylvia obtained her Masters in Nursing.
