Naomi was just a kid when I was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s disease.
This Is My Mama is her story. We collaborated on this animated film and entered it into the 2012 Neuro Film Festival. Organized by the American Academy of Neurology Foundation, this contest raises awareness about brain disorders and the need to support research into preventions, treatments and cures. There are 104 entries — all of them inspiring! Public voting for the “Fan Favorite” Award has begun.
I invite you to watch This Is My Mama and the other films too!
And then VOTE for your favourite! This will take a couple minutes, because you will need to register your name and email info in order to create an account — making you eligible to vote. Winners will be announced the evening of April 22, 2012, at the Neuro Film Festival in New Orleans.
