WHAT ARE INVISIBLE COSMIC ZEBRAS?
-Invisible Cosmic Zebras are those invisible "friends" in your life (chronic pain, an invisible illness, syndrome, disease or injury) that you have come to acknowledge and accept as lifelong companions.
-Invisible Cosmic Zebras are unique and different from each other and nobody knows exactly what they look like because they are invisible.
-Invisible Cosmic Zebras frequently hang out with cosmic creatures (like the ones in the collection) who can assist in "taming the zebra" (managing an illness).
-These cosmic creatures also help to bring hope, levity and love to those dealing with invisible (and sometimes lifelong and incurable) medical conditions.
