Please Help the Invisible Man

Many of you may have seen Hollywood depictions or read stories of the Invisible Man which make his life look glorious, or dangerous.  The truth is the medical condition that causes complete invisibility can be quite debilitating.  It is socially isolating, makes relationships difficult, and job seeking nearly impossible.  The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) sadly left this condition out of the legislation and the Social Security Administration still does not recognize this disability.  Even those who qualify for Medicare find there are no effective treatments available for this rare condition.  One such sufferer is Frank Jenkinson, pictured below.  Please, if you come across Frank, or any other sufferers of invisibility, don’t walk on by like they aren’t even there.  It may look like they aren’t there, but trust me – they are.  Give today, help solve the invisible crisis.
