What a great idea a new website to showcase Rare Art created by Rare People to support Rare Disease awareness. The Kakkis Everylife Foundation has launched RareArtist.org for artists of all ages affected by a rare disease.
There are almost 7,000 rare diseases that affect more than 25 million Americans many of them are children like Addi and Cassi who suffer from Niemann Pick Type C disease which causes childhood dementia and is fatal.
The EveryLife Art Contest was established to empower artists affected by Rare Diseases to express their unique struggle with a rare disease. An art competition is being held and is open to all artists affected by a Rare Disease ages 5 and older.
