Christina Frazier, 31, was diagnosed two years ago with a rare
blood disease. During her illness Frazier, a KU student set to
graduate in May with a bachelor's degree in art, continued to
create artwork. One of her most significant works, finished in a KU

Frazier said. "That's how art works you try to work through your
