The Chronic Illness Coalition has made a commitment to highlight the courage of persons with chronic illness and their family caregivers. Over a lifetime most of us will have personal experience with at least one long-term illness ourselves, as well as experience caring for family members or friends. It is our duty and our privilege to shine a light on these realities and celebrate the persons affected by chronic illness.
