September is Pain Awareness Month. Each year, Rest Ministries, a nonprofit organization supporting people with chronic illness, designates one week in September as Invisible Illness Awareness Week and sponsors activities aimed at spreading awareness of the challenges of living with a chronic illness. This year that week is September 8-14, 2014.
The theme of Invisible Illness Awareness Week this year is “Just One.” This awareness video was created as a reminder that although you may feel like just one, being one is enough and we can make a huge difference in the lives of those we take time to encourage.
