A charitable Creative Wellness Art project of SheilaLynnK Art Studio; it is intended to send an empowering message for change to: arachnoiditis survivors & their support networks, persons living with chronic pain, administrative bodies governing medical policies resulting in adverse outcomes, professionals teaching/administering healing through art, employers who must accommodate arachnoiditis in the work place, and other artists with "disabilities"
At the risk of over-simplifying... Arachnoiditis is a spinal cord injury caused by the neurotoxins in spinal injections and invasive spinal procedures.
