FACT: Many chronic illnesses, like lupus, are often invisible to others. Those with invisible disabilities often struggle with debilitating pain, fatigue, dizziness, weakness, cognitive disfunction, hearing and vision impairments, and much more. Spreading awareness about invisible illnesses is the only way to create a more accepting, understanding world with medical and social validation for those who suffer. How can you help validate invisible illnesses? www.MollysFund.org
