IDA is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded by Wayne Connell in honor of his wife Sherrie Connell because of her debilitating condition.
“IDA’s mission revolves around care. We care by listening, believing, validating, encouraging, educating and connecting people touched by illness, pain and disability and telling the world that those people matter. The annual awards banquet is an opportunity to raise awareness and funds and honor those individuals and organizations making positive contributions toward understanding and treating invisible disabilities,” Connell said.
