Allie Cashel and Erica Lupinacci have started an impactful photo project that helps to give others a voice. As teens, both women were diagnosed with chronic illnesses that are, essentially, invisible. Cashel copes with chronic Lyme disease, while Lupinacci was diagnosed with Lupus during her senior year of high school. Both illnesses don’t show noticeable physical symptoms and are instead characterized by an internal struggle. “I have a few memories of being aware that Allie was sick,” Lupinacci told The Mighty. “She took a leave of absence from school for a while and we visited each other in the hospital a few times, but we never sat down and talked about what we were scared of or what was hard. And I think that’s pretty consistent of young people going through this.”
