Melinda Zanello

Patient Leader

My Invisible Life, a NFP storytelling community about living with an invisible illness or disability. I have MS and know only too well how invisible it can be. MIL was inspired by my own journey and by my friendship with a woman with ALS. At MIL we aim to: - Assists people in our community in feeling less isolated, more empowered and more connected to their world. - Provides a vehicle for those with illness, family and friends to speak out about their experiences. - Enables the wider community to grow their understanding and appreciation what it is like to live with a challenging health condition – be it visible or invisible.
