Anna comes from an amazing family who fought unimaginable repression, and now she survives with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.). Despite her own suffering, she works endlessly to raise awareness and compassion for those with Invisible Diseases. She helps others to never give up!
Please take a moment to see her video (below) and read her proclamation here:
"Myalgic Encephalomyelitis is the name I would come to learn over 33 years of fighting this invisible disease, which has no beginning, and no end.
Today there continues to be little recognition for the millions of survivors, and fighters who live with this battle every day, month, and year, decade after decade.
For those of us who endure this struggle of an unforgiving, relentless, frustrating, untreated, disregarded, disrespected and ignored suffering for millions housebound and hidden. We are the forgotten.
Let it be known, we with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, are never giving up, and one day our plight will have new meaning.
We will have 'OUR DAY'. "
-Anna Mina Emuna (Our Visible Hero!)
