HAE Junior’s drawing exhibition unveiled the dreams, wishes, and ambitions of children & teenagers living with hereditary angioedema (HAE).
The patient organization HAE Junior organized a drawing exhibition named We Have Big Dreams for HAE Juniors which conveyed, in an artistic way, the dreams, hopes, and interests of children and teenagers living with the rare disease hereditary angioedema (HAE). The event was held to mark both HAE Day (May 16th) and International Children’s Day (June 1st).
Pediatric HAE patients aged 4 to 12, as well as their relatives and friends from the Czech Republic and abroad, contributed to the exhibition with their own drawings and paintings. The drawings are on display in the Patient Hub in Prague, from May 12 to mid-July, as well as online on the HAE Junior website. Later in 2021, the original drawings will be offered for display to HAE Junior partners.
What did the young artists most often illustrate in their drawings?
The pictures feature motifs of hope, light, science, as well as passion for sports, love of nature, or ideas about own future professions. In the title drawing named “The Czech Republic Knows What HAE Is”, the 9-year-old author Dominic expressed his hopes that one day all people from his country will be aware of this disease.
