Proceeds from this Web site fund chronic illness and chronic condition awareness and support.
In addition to the chronic illness- and chronic condition-related articles, information, and t-shirt and gift idea designs on this site, Chronic-Illness.org is also the home of the Chronic Illness Realities comic strips.
Pammy is the main character in two comic strips by Pamela Rice Hahn, the first of which is the Writing Woes comic strip. Pammy is a writer who is also disabled because of chronic illness and chronic conditions, so she also appears in the Chronic Illness Realities comic strip.
Pam created chronic-illness.org because she herself copes with several disabling chronic illnesses and conditions: exercise-intolerant Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)*, Fibromalgia, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS)**, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), arthritis, gout, and high blood pressure. In addition, Pam has balance problems stemming from a childhood fractured skull.

**Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) is also referred to as Environmental Illness (EI).
