According to the US Centers for Disease Control, up to 24% of adults have a disability. However, 74% of people that live with severe disabilities do not have outwardly recognizable symptoms. Such “invisible illnesses” may include debilitating pain, brain injuries, and mental health disorders.
Our guest today is Kristy Hurley, owner and founder of WearIt, an apparel brand that supports and advocates for those with invisible illnesses. Both she and her son have rare genetic conditions. They started WearIt to help others with invisible illnesses to find confidence and value despite their circumstances.
