Name: Milly Banks
Age: 23
Year of the Fix: 2016
Location: Cheltenham
Campaign: Invisible Illnesses

I am often left hospital-bound by invisible illnesses that leave me exhausted and in extreme pain.

 

With my Fixers project I want to challenge people’s perception of disability and show that just because you can’t see someone’s illness, it doesn’t mean it’s not there.

 

I have lived with ME and Fibromyalgia since I was nine and I am fed up with people doubting that I am unwell.

 

As a keen photographer I am putting together a photography exhibition to try to create more compassion for people living with invisible illnesses.

 

I hope my project will encourage others to be less judgemental of people that suffer from conditions that are not visible.
