Fundraising Update

The fundraising effort for the documentary has been very slow. I don't want to compete with the fundraising to fight the disease, and I'm terribly about being pushy on such things. Thus, it's no surprise that it's slow. However, the effort has netted some great things for the making of the film. We have had donations of equipment from cameras to lighting packages to sound equipment. we have had donations of skills like cinematography, grip, gaffers and production assistants. And we've even had donations of frequent flier miles.

All of this has been invaluable and will definitely help us shoot this film. So, the fundraising is having a huge impact despite being slow with cash. But we still need more cash for the things that will go wrong. So, share this link:


Put it everywhere you can think of.

June Update -- Orgainzing the Interviews

I've had a couple dozen responses to the call for interviews from all across the country and from around the world. There have even been some doctors amongst the responses. There is a wide range of stories and outcomes. All of them are compelling.

I'm going to start scheduling phone interviews in the next couple of weeks, so that I can begin to shape the narrative of the film.

Though I will not be attending the events in Philadelphia, the trip to Cleveland in August still stands.
