Invisible Illness Awareness Week – Sept 9-15

  [ 3 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ] • August 23, 2013

Each year one week in September is set aside to raise awareness for people who live with chronic invisible illnesses.  This year National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week, sponsored by Rest Ministries, runs from Monday, September 9 through Sunday, September 15, 2013. 

The theme for 2013's Invisible Illness Week is “I choose to _______” 

From NICIAW's website: 

Invisible illness isn’t a choice. But your visible hope is! You don’t have control over whether you are ill or not, but there are so many things to do have the ability to choose.

So, what do you choose?

We are collecting your images, photos, illustrations, of what you choose. It can be you holding a piece of paper that says, “I choose to… (fill in the blank).” Or a photo of you doing something you choose. It could be a photo of you and some friends and your choice to find the energy to hang out with them. Whatever!

Your images can be shared anywhere you’d like to help spread the word that invisible illness is not a choice, but you are still finding ways to live.

You'll find more information about Invisible Illness Week and how to upload and share your photos on the FAQ page of the NICIAW website.

In the video below, Lisa Copen, founder of Rest Ministries, explains more about this year's “I choose to _______” theme.
