National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week

invisible illness week logo

September 10-16, 2012 is the annual National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week (NICIAW), put on by Rest Ministries in collaboration with other sponsors including the Invisible Disabilities Association (IDA).  This is a time to bring awareness to the nearly 1 in 2 people who live with a chronic illness, about 96% of which is invisible.  The theme for this year is “Invisible Illness? Share Your Visible Hope.”  This year, NICIAW will provide audio and video seminars, handouts, articles, blogs, posters and more!

Help raise funds for the Invisible Disabilities Association this September

The Invisible Disabilities Association (IDA) is a non-profit organization that has been encouraging, educating and connecting people and organizations touched by invisible disabilities around the world since 1997. IDA provides awareness, articles, pamphlets, booklets, radio interviews, videos, seminars, events, resources, an online social network and much more.

In September, IDA will receive one dollar up to $1,000 for each person who “Likes” Allsup’s Facebook Page and posts an answer on that page to this question: How can others best encourage you on your journey with illness, pain or disability?
