Jasper Exhibit Raises Awareness For Rare Disease
Sunday 23 February 2020
From Canadian news outlet Jasper FitzHugh:
Jasper exhibit raises awareness for rare disease
Cutline: Marie LeBlanc’s art show will be on display at Habitat for the Arts from February 19 to March 7 daily from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
It can happen in line at the grocery store, while in her car, at home or in a hotel. Suddenly, Marie LeBlanc’s brain will go blank and she might drop something, forget what she was saying, or start cracking jokes because it’s all she can think to do.
For someone living with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), environmental triggers are everywhere and often unpredictable.
In conjunction with Pyjama Day – an event to raise awareness about autoimmune diseases – her upcoming event at Habitat for the Arts, WHO says we need fresh air?!, presents MCS in a heartwarming (and heartwrenching) way.
“I want more compassion for people with this illness,” she said. “If somebody has a condition that is hard to diagnose or understand and they go from doctor to doctor with all these symptoms, maybe it’s an environmental illness.”
