      You are an amazing woman, and an inspiration to all of us in the community. As I noted your techniques for pacing, I couldn't help but think how great it would be to have a forum in which we could share our approaches to dealing with the disease. Have you had any thoughts about this? If so please let us know. I would be happy to help in anyway possible with an effort to collaboratively communicate treatments. Thank you for your hard work.

      So glad you all had this very inspiring and motivating experience. It must have been amazing! And, as I let what you wrote sink in, especially your thanks to your producers and universe management man I get a little misty. Take time to breathe now, get rest and take time out for each other too : )

      With the IOM report just out, this will need to be incorporated in the film now of course. I don't know how far out release is at this point, but publicity wise it would be ideal if the Laura Hillenbrand story followed the IOM report would be followed as quickly as possible with Canaries, keeping up public awareness while we try to raise money.
