CROTON, N.Y. -- Croton resident Amanda Leigh Morey will be part of an art exhibit created entirely by patients suffering from a rare disease called cystinosis in Chicago from July 16 through July 18.
More than 100 artists from 30 countries are participating in the "Dream, Achieve, Inspire" exhibit.
The artists aim to make a statement of awareness and strength for those living with the disease.
