This piece is titled Hope. I am 9 years old. I lived in Arizona for 6 years of my life. The desert is hot and dry but in the spring the cactus bloom and give hope that there is still life in a desert. I have a rare disease called (HSH) Hypomagnesmia with Secondary Hypocalcimia. Art helps me cope with all the pain and hospitalizations. I like to advocate for rare diseases and plan on starting a HSH foundation with part of the award if I am chosen as a winner.
