Proof Positivity: Blogging for invisible illness week

National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week is held annually in September and is a worldwide effort to bring together people who live with invisible chronic illness and those who love them. Organizations are encouraged to educate the general public, churches, healthcare professionals and government officials about the impact of living with a chronic illness that is not visually apparent.”
Almost half of the population of America, that’s about 133 million, has a chronic condition such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, migranes, or even pain from a car accident. 96% live with an illness that is invisible. They seem perfectly healthy. 60% are between the ages of 18- 64. 9 million are cancer survivors who are having side effects from treatment.
