What we're about

Welcome to The Invisible Me Warriors - Chronic Illness Advocates!

We created a meetup and nonprofit for local people who live with 61+ Chronic Illness or Invisible Disabilities in Palm Beach County. We discuss, share, laugh, and conquer the misconceptions regarding these disabling conditions. This new non-profit offers many services. Our primary resource provided at this time is our support groups. Our Warrior Gatherings (support groups), which are held bi-monthly in Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, are seeking to make a difference for people with Chronic Illnesses and their loved ones by providing a safe and comfortable environment where patients, caregivers, family, and friends can share their concerns and questions, learn from one another and periodic expert speakers. The goal of our support group is to promote an understanding of chronic illnesses and to further The Invisible Me Warriors mission in providing information and support to people with chronic illnesses through research, education, community programs, and advocacy. Our other services range from activities, handouts, and information regarding local resources that can help our warriors continue to strive and survive against chronic illness.

This year we will have guest speakers who have knowledge regarding our illnesses and can offer us new insight into chronic illnesses.

This is not a product or service selling gathering. These gatherings are for warriors, caregiver and families to come and get support and inspiration to keep going and fighting our illnesses.

This group was created so we can just understand that our disorders and illnesses do not control us and that we may be going through the same struggles.

How are we funded?

Our founder and President Michelle Aldas, a chronic illness warrior herself, runs this non-profit on a volunteer basis along with our other board members Johnny Maloney, Kyra Holt and a few more volunteers behind the scenes. At this time we are looking for sponsors, and more volunteers to join the cause. This, is how we are starting the organization but hope that shortly we could find a grant or sponsorship to be able to expand more. We do this for our warriors not for profit. Our founder was the prime example of why this organization was needed and started by her. She found herself with nowhere to turn about a couple of years back. Every social worker or county resource office couldn't find anything, and she was losing hope. Back in May of 2018, that hope and determination gave rise to Invisible Me Warriors. It started as a simple social media advocacy platform and then expanded into our support groups and patient advocacy services. We are still small, but growing. All the services and groups we provide are free and only ask that a donation be made if financially possible.
