I wanted to share this with you all as it seems like a very important opportunity for those diagnosed with a terminal illness to share their experiences, feelings, thoughts, fears, hopes and uncertainties with the world. Those of us diagnosed with a terminal illness know just how incredibly hard life becomes in an instant.
I was contacted by an international TV production company that is making a documentary film comprised of short 2-3 minute home videos of those who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. It sounds very promising to me. I love the idea of sharing the impact that such a diagnosis has on us with the rest of the world. I plan to participate. You can either use your home video camera, computer camera, or a video shot on you phone and submit it. In other words it doesn't have to be fancy or shot by a pro. It seems like a great step in the right direction to draw attention to how the diagnosis of a terminal illness affects us, as well as a great educational tool for those who have no idea of what it must be like to be told that you have a short time left on this earth.
Here is the email I got, copied and pasted right into my blog. Now you have the same information I do. Please consider sharing this with others who might be interested as well.
