Patient Release

The Beyond the Diagnosis Art Exhibit’s focus is the rare disease patient. Artists donate their time and talents to paint children living with a rare disease for this groundbreaking exhibit. The exhibit is traveling to medical schools, research institutes and hospitals around the globe encouraging the medical community to look “beyond the diagnosis” to the patient.

There are 7,000 rare diseases. At Rare Disease United Foundation our hope is to raise awareness of all 7,000 diseases through the Beyond the Diagnosis Art Exhibit. After just one year, the exhibit has already exceeded all of our expectations and reached millions through media coverage of the exhibit. This exhibit has been embraced by both the medical community and researchers as an important educational tool and is bringing much needed attention to rare diseases.

We are so grateful to participating artists for their contribution to Beyond the Diagnosis and for bringing unprecedented awareness to people living with a rare disease.

All applicants will be kept on file. There are 7,000 rare diseases and we need lots of help. Unfortunately, we can only cover so many per year. Thank you for your interest.
