Chronic illness is something that affects millions of people every day. Everybody who suffers from chronic illness (the homeless, the rich, the financially stable, etc.) deserves the same amount of treatment and support no matter who they are or how they stand financially. As somebody who suffers from chronic illness at a young age, I can say firsthand that it is not addressed as seriously as it should be. Take this for example: 1 in 10 women worldwide suffer from Endometriosis, yet there are only about 100 specialists worldwide that are skilled in the advanced laparoscopic surgery needed to accurately treat the disease. There are Type 1 Diabetics who are only insured under their parents’ insurance until they turn 15. This is not a good way to be treating such common chronic diseases. Those who suffer deserve the right to experience advanced treatment no matter the age. I am still not being treated for my disease and I was diagnosed months ago.  This has to change. I see people who are chronically ill with diagnosed short life expectancies as young as 15. Imagine being that young and knowing you’re not going to live as long as your friends, or maybe even your parents. Think about every person who is affected, and how they should be seen, cared for, and adequately treated. Sign this petition to help raise awareness for chronic illness.
