  • There will be a phone number you can call and ask the guest speaker a question, or you can send in your question via the "chat function."

  • Please note: all conferences will be recorded and available online for free the week after Invisible Illness Week as an MP3 file, or perhaps sooner. We may also put together a CD of all conferences that will be available for a small fee.
We're sure you will find so much helpful information during this week and be sure to make it a priority to take a few minutes to visit some of our "speakers" web sites or purchase their books. All of them have donated their time, preparation and resources just to encourage you!

"I would never be able to attend in person due to expenses and because I don't travel well. Plus all the walking involved to get from one place to another would make it difficult for me to attend. With a virtual conference all of that is eliminated! No stress of getting to the right room by the right time." Carrie Crews, lives with Migraines, Chronic Daily Headache, Fibromyalgia

"There is no way at my age that I could travel and still be on my feet for a conference. Nor can I be in beds where fabric softener and/or bleach might have been used in the sheets and towels, due to a chemical illness I have. There are many other reasons why this type of conference being available to me will be beneficial, and it is hard to put it all in one sentence." Alice Ervin

"This is a once-on-a-lifetime opportunity for me to hear these speakers. I have no energy to go to a conference." Elizabeth Volkart, lives with CFIDS, FMS, Meniere's, Hashimoto's, Apnea

"Having conferences available to listen to is like a miracle to me! I no longer have to miss opportunities due to financial difficulties or inability to travel. I can't wait!" Kimberly Strange, lives with neuropathic pain in legs post back surgery

"I've never been involved in a conference like this, but it is a wonderful idea and a fantastic blessing for those of us who wish we could attend in person but can't afford it, can't travel that far, and absolutely can't sit that long in a conference." Julie Garner, lives with Fibromyalgia

"I feel that this will be a very special help for all of us who suffer from several afflictions. I plan to share this information with others I know that are suffering too." Doug Bolton, lives with Stenosis of the spine, heart disease, chronic back pain
