Hi all,

If anyone is interested on participating on the Pre-existing Condition traveling show, and you have already posted the photos on the groups, please send me a note stating that you what to participate, so I can send the photo to Zoey and Dereck. The image has to be a good resolution (tiff or jpg) to be able to print them on 8x10 or 11x14. We need also all the information about the piece and artist to prepare the placard:


You can send post it in the Group using the right steps to upload the photo, or even better just Zoey and/or Dereck directly.

Just please let us know in the group or by email, if you will like to participate on the show.

What a great way to get children involved and draw awareness to juvenile diabetes, one of the fastest rising types according to the Gerald J. Friedman Diabetes Institute in NYC.

Thank you Susan, this means we fulfilled our goal. Please post the drawings in this group so we can all keep learning from our children! :)

Thanks for the video. I sent it to friends to give them a better understanding of what we go through. I cry every time I see it. Tomorrow our family is going to sit down and draw!

we arrange group gathering for mothers and diabetic children who sit drawing their feelings about diabetes,now they,especially girls are writing their feelings about life on large in memoirs and some write poems
through art many are encouraged to pour their frustration about any thing in paiting,drawing or writing.
our aim to publish a book to be sold for the sake of diabetics in need in our country
