Those living with spina bifida are battling a war many people fail to recognize.
Screw the Scar, an exhibit presented by Ronnie Rose Photography, will be open to the public from 6 to 8 p.m. April 21 at the Downriver Council for the Arts, 81 Chestnut.
The Screw the Scar 2017 campaign celebrates over 166,000 Americans living with spina bifida.
The photographic art, featuring the stories of several Michigan-based people, raises awareness of the different ways spina bifida affects individuals of all ages.
“There is no cost to attend,” Rose said. “Donations are being requested and we will have tons of great items for auction and raffle. Our main goal is to showcase these amazing warriors!”
Donations received at this event will help develop a scholarship fund that benefits an individual born with a lifelong birth defect and their future education.
The event includes complimentary food and drinks, as well as a silent auction.
“Even Elsa will be there for photos with the kids,” Rose said, referring to the fictional character from the Disney animated film “Frozen.”
