Cystic Fibrosis is invisible to others. We just have a nasty cough and get out of breath quickly.
To educate people we have devised a slightly unusual fundraiser; DRAW CF. I am the CF person with all the typical CF traits ranging from clubbed fingernails to barrel chest and distended belly. An art teacher explains CF to the class and teaches them to draw me.
After almost 2 years of thinking about it we conducted a test run at home and it is determined to be a feasible plan. It may sound a little sordid, but most medical things are. It was very scary to sit there in my undies being drawn, but it really is very kosher. Not scary at all! A good time was had by all and everyone was edumecated on Cystic Fibrosis.
If anyone is interested in organising one let me know and if i can't make it maybe you can find your own CF model and I can supply the sample lesson plan for you.
Go on, relax, have fun and learn about CF and learn to draw! From $15 per person including art supplies. Click here for inquiries .
