Ambassador of Hope

Miss Brooklyn Mills

Living with chronic pain and suffering through the challenges of diagnosis, treatment and care, require a peer support network of people that can validate the devastating impact on a young person’s life. I can honestly say that without having the skills and the necessary tools to support the mental health required, to help me have patience, I would not be here today.

Strength  Courage  Faith  Patience  Support  Love  Compassion  Resolve … are words that describe an adolescent suffering in chronic pain.  The ILC Foundation Brings about Hope!

If Pain affects bodymind and spirit, then treatment must address these three pillars of the human condition.

  • Chronic pain support for children, youth, and teens
  • [Children and adolescents] suffering with chronic pain are twice as likely to suffer from depression and anxiety as those without. What starts in your lower back eventually eats away at your soul. You enjoy your loved ones [and friendships] less, and you are less enjoyable to them.
