For seven years, the INvisible Project has brought to light the often-hidden challenges faced by those with chronic pain. Now, the campaign is expanding its mission by increasing to two editions this year and working to highlight specific patient populations. The two editions will focus on migraine disease and rheumatoid arthritis disease. The issue on migraine disease will be published next month.
Through the sharing of patient stories and personal photographs via its website (INvisibleProject.org), traveling physical displays and a print magazine, the campaign shows what it’s like to live with pain—and to thrive in spite of it. INvisible Project Director and U.S. Pain Foundation Vice President Nicole Hemmenway said she is amazed and humbled by the success of the flagship program.
“Since inception, our goal has been to show the reality of life with pain, and why people need and deserve more help, treatment options, and research,” she says. “We’re thrilled to be able to highlight even more stories than before.”
