Unique Art Auction Benefits PWS Research

Art Auction


20 unique paintings are available to the highest bidders in a unique art auction benefiting the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research (FPWR).

Each piece of art, beautifully painted on a 12×12 canvas, was created specifically for this art show by individuals with Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) to help raise the funds needed to find treatments for PWS.

“The quality of art is remarkable,” states FPWR Executive Director Susan Hedstrom. “You simply can’t find pieces as beautiful and unique as these, and to top it off, 100% of proceeds will benefit much needed PWS Research. It’s a win-win.”

Each piece of art has been set up for auction with a starting bid of only $35. Bidding opens on April 29th and ends Sunday, May 6th, at 4 pm EST.

Susan Hedstrom


Susan Hedstrom is the Executive Director for the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research. Passionate about finding treatments for PWS, Susan joined FPWR in 2009 shortly after her son, Jayden, was diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome. Rather than accepting PWS as it has been defined, Susan has chosen to work with a team of pro-active and tireless individuals to accelerate PWS research in order to change the natural history of PWS. Inspired by her first FPWR conference and the team of researchers that were working to find answers for the syndrome, she hosted her first One SMALL Step walk in 2010 and began the development of the One SMALL Step walk program which now raises over $1.5 million a year for PWS research.
