To mark Rare Disease Day 2021, the Chatcot-Marie-Tooth Association (CMTA) is running a “Faces of CMT Photography Competition”. It is not too late to enter but hurry, the deadline is Sunday, Feb. 21, 2021.
They are looking for a photograph that represents “Challenges living with CMT and strategies to overcome them.” It should be accompanied with a short description of less than 100 words.
This is an international competition open to everyone! Whether you’re living with, or alongside CMT, this is an opportunity to share your creativity. More information can be found here: https://www.cmtausa.org/news/faces-of-cmt-photography-competition/
CMT Photography Competition
Here is my entry for the photo contest (98 words):
“Tip-Toeing Through the Grass”
This composite photo represents for me one of the many challenges I face living with CMT. I cannot walk up a hill to enjoy the shade with a friend, let alone walk on “tippy-toes” through the grass. Yet I take solace in nature. The smell of fresh cut grass, the scent from the tall pine trees and the warm sunlight, all pictured here, remind me of how extraordinary I am. Even the cat seems to look towards me with compassionate understanding. CMT is also a natural occurrence and while at times challenging, I take harbor in nature’s tranquility.
I am also hoping to spread CMT awareness, and the use of CBD as a treatment, with these social media handles:

I realize my picture may be a little abstract but so what! It’s my artwork and actually means something to me. What do you think?
