Honoring EB Awareness week 2020

Artist Tim Au-Yeung donated his time and artistic skills to collaborate on a series of paintings for Cause the Wave. The eye-catching 16×16 portraits show 10 EB warriors expressing their unique personalities and changing the way people perceive EB. Click here to watch the photos be transformed into breathtaking portraits.

To Mia’s excitement!

She had the honor of being chosen as one of the individuals with EB to be painted in the series. When her portrait arrived she recognized herself instantly and was over the moon.

A huge thank you to Tim and Cause the Wave for creating this magical moment!

In the podcast Tim shares a powerful poem, he wrote

Being strong 
When you want to break down
Keeping a smile
When it’s easier to frown.
Working through your troubles
Not just push them away
Living my best life,
Every day
Being thankful
For the time we have here
Bringing people together
To help you face the fear
To survive
A cure
To endure.
