I Am More Than My Disease: A Project of Identity for World Rare Disease Day — Gallery

In support of World Rare Disease Day, The Afternoon Nap Society presents "I Am More Than My Disease: A Project of Identity." Participants were invited to create their own word cloud images including the name of their disease and words they use to describe themselves. The project aims to call attention to the individuals who live with disease—rare or otherwise—and their lives outside their diagnosis.  Too often we forget that patients are people and should be treated as such.

  1. Love it. Words are often not enough, the art of using words in a visual sense is very attention getting.

    Thanks for sharing.
