The Beautiful People Are Smiling!


Together we have achieved our goal, and together we will make a difference with this film.

We are grateful for your patience, support and belief in our film. And we will make sure that everyone in the waiting room is aware of your belief in them.

Just two days ago Chris, a patient we met at Highland a couple years ago, became our 500th backer with a $1 pledge. We thanked him and he said, "I wished I could do more." Well, Chris...your pledge is a symbol of the type of spirit we hope this film will bring to the conversation around health care reform as we take it to towns and cities across America.

Here is Chris in one of our first web videos. Do yourself a it all the way to the end and you'll understand why we became so enchanted with the idea of capturing the kaleidoscope of humanity in the waiting room.

You all have made this possible! So, on we go...

❤ Pete Nicks and the entire Waiting Room Team
