Hello from Doha, Qatar

Med Students at Exhibit.

Things are amazing here in Doha. With tireless efforts from recent Weill Cornell Medical College-Qatar graduate, Fouad Otaki and Nada Hassen from the Public Affairs department, we have managed at short notice to exhibit, lecture and photograph lots of new friends. The exhibition was a huge success and the prints, on canvas are spectacular. Thank you Weill Cornell Medical College and The Qatar Foundaton for your support and making this visit AMAZING! Went to Al Bayan School for Girls this morning and everyone there embraced our message. Celebrate the spirit of difference. This place rocks! Busy day shooting tomorrow at several local hospitals. More news soon!

The AWESOME Fouad Otaki.

  2. Rick,

    You are such an inspiration! It’s incredible to see a 6 foot picture of my angel Kayla. WOW! What an amazing exhibit. Keep up the great work!

    You are making the world a better place, one photo at a time.


  3. Hi there,

    I’ve just stumbled upon your website while on facebook/Myotonic Dystrophy Foudation. I am still trying to fully comprehend what your organization is all about but so far it seems to be for a good cause.

    My mother and my sister both have myotonic dystrophy and some would say that their beauty has faded as a result. But according to you guys, beauty has many faces. I think I like what I see thus far on your website. Keep up the good work.

    Btw. Have you all ever visited Trinidad and Tobago?

  4. Wow! Ghanim, the wildman skateboarder…I am so proud of you!…You have the talent…Please continue it..You deserves to be called as a model to the wheelchair-bounded people…an inspiration for us..
