Individuals who live with disability or chronic illness often feel emotionally or physically isolated -- due to health challenges preventing participation in favorite life activities and events and/or the feeling that no-one really understands what they are going thru. We've heard from individuals living with serious health conditions that they feel even more isolated and lonely right now because the health pandemic requires many to stay at home to a greater extent than before. We're also hearing of the increased fear many of our community members struggle with. Those with compromised health are particularly concerned that their bodies might not be strong enough to fight COVID-19 should they contract it.
Our Heart Speaks (https://ourheartspeaks.org) offers an online platform for individuals living with disability or chronic illness to heal themselves and inspire others by sharing their stories, via an artistic medium of their choice.
Thru increased social media presence, online advertising, and other digital marketing activities, we would like to increase awareness of our organization and our important work, so that a greater number of individuals throughout the world, who may be feeling more anxious or down during the pandemic, can heal themselves and inspire others.
Ultimately, we want to continue to offer a place for patients to go to feel connected and understood, and to get the word out to more individuals who would benefit from our online platform during these turbulent times. We believe this will support individuals with serious illness feeling less isolated and alone during what may be an extended period of time.
Be a part of this movement. Empower us to reimagine what is possible and challenge the stereotypes that we individually and collectively hold around life with a new disability or chronic illness. Through your support help us celebrate the human spirit.
