Chronic Warrior: Abi Stevens Expands Her Pin Range To Empower People Living With Chronic Illness

Chronic Warrior: Abi Stevens expands her pin range to empower people living with chronic illness
If you're someone who suffers from chronic pain or illness, then Cambridge artist Abi Stevens has launched a project to help empower you.
The illustrator has created a collection of enamel pins to help raise awareness and enable open dialogue about the experiences of long-term illness for the 15 million people in the UK who live with one.
Inspired by her own experiences of chronic migraines, she launched the first collection in 2019 with Chronic Warrior and Migraine Warrior pins; now Abi has launched a Kickstarter campaign to expand the range.
"This project has always been about support and love for my sister, who helped me through my struggles with chronic migraine while dealing with her own life-altering chronic illnesses," Abi says. "Seeing how she has taken the most difficult experiences in her life and used them as fuel to help others has inspired me to do the same and use my artwork for something meaningful."
This year, she is expanding the series to cover a broader range of chronic health issues to spread the message of strength and support to as many people as possible. The proposed pins include designs saying Spoonie Sisterhood, Fatigued and Fabulous, Fibromyalgia Fighter and Autoimmune Warrior.
