“Arachnoiditis Survivor: A Portrait of Resilience against Patient Harm in America is moving forward! 

Over the next few weeks, I will be scheduling interviews and photo sessions with Survivor Volunteers. I am truly looking forward to meeting some of the other survivors, sharing the healing power of art, discussing experiences and ideas about adaptability & reasonable accommodations, and creating an empowered, connected healing community as we increase arachnoiditis awareness and work together to prevent future adverse outcomes. I am excited to explore the creative challenges of building authentic, meaningful, conceptual portraits for this diverse culture of survivors.” ~slk

As a reward for reaching our minimum goal, AIM|Hatchfund has granted an EXTRA 30 days to accept any additional donations. These funds will be distributed on a weekly basis to this Art For Arachnoiditis project.  Please let anyone who intended to donate know they still have time to make a tax-deductible contribution.  

You might remember from the project launch (plan A) that the average cost to travel to each Survivor Volunteer (excluding food) is $565.45. Every additional contribution helps expand the reach of the project & the awareness message by providing supplemental funding for:

Empowering face-to-face interviews with survivors, creating the documentary photo series with fellow Survivors, publicity & expansion of the public art exhibition of the project images 

 All donations from this point on are guaranteed to be applied to the Arachnoiditis Survivor project.

Any questions about the AIM|Hatchfund organization can be directed to:

Arachnoiditis Survivors are asked to complete this anonymous survey and return it to the studio by August 15, 2014

Now accepting input from Survivors who are ready to tell their arachnoiditis story.

Although it is a shame that there are so many people in need of this resource, it is exciting and validating to know that many Arachnoiditis Survivors have faith in the empowering benefits of this art project. We are determined to show the faces affected by this hidden adverse outcome.” ~slk
