We hardly ever beseech each other to contribute to worthy causes yet, this one is so personal and close to home for most of you that I'm asking you to do that now.
This film might be starring me, but it's really about all the patients, families, caregivers and lives that have been devastated by FTD.
If your reading this there is good chance you are family member, caregiver, friend or someone in the health industry directly related to FTD. You know how devastating FTD is. The film is not only about devastation, it's about me finding purpose in life again and grasping at a life that is going away. There's no question my health is declining, but I'm choosing life and to make the most of it till the very end.
Maybe circulate the link to your communities, via e mail or post on FaceBook? Get your community / family to support this project in this way. Joe Becker of Thinkfilm is the filmmaker, he's won Emmys for TV's "West Wing" and produced hundred's of other projects including the short FTD caregiver film, "it is What it is". This is a real opportunity to get this film made.
"Howard's Brain" being made will shine a light on this awful disease and raise more funds for research and an eventual cure.
We need your help now.
