Agnieszka Idelt raising awareness of CIND

May 12th has been designated as International Awareness Day for Chronic Immunological and Neurological Diseases (CIND) since 1992. The CIND illnesses include Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Fibromyalgia (FM), Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS).

Agnieszka Idelt approached me asking if I could help her raise awareness of the invisible illnesses and in particular Fibromyalgia. Of course I am delighted to have an opportunity to put my photography skills to good use for a great cause.  We intend to produce a series of different images with different people to spread the message.  We have made a start and look out for more interesting images to come over time.
