Today’s featured artist is Reneé Dale with her submission titled “Cough?”.
“The epithelium lining the nasopharynx, middle ear, paranasal sinuses, and larger airways are covered by motile cilia, and the mucociliary escalator is a critical local defense that protects the upper and lower respiratory tracts. Effective airway clearance is dependent on closely coordinated and regulated ciliary function, and any disturbance in the precise, orchestrated movement of cilia can cause disease.
Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD), previously known as immotile cilia syndrome, is a rare inherited ciliopathy and the first human disease linked to motile cilia dysfunction.” ~ Chest Journal
The PCD Artist Project is a collaborative effort by artist to raise awareness for PCD or primary ciliary dyskinesia and support the PCD Smiles program. Each artist who submitted art work to the project either has PCD or has a PCD family member.
