ABC News: Felled by 'Devastating Disease Doctors Have Never Heard of'
We are thrilled to announce that ABCnews.com has a new piece about Canary in a Coal Mine and the realities of life with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. It features interviews with Jennifer Brea, Nancy Klimas, and Jessica Taylor.
At the heart of this project is a belief in the unique power of film and media to bring to light the stories of people with otherwise invisible illnesses. This is one of the rare times that Myalgic Encephalomyelitis has been portrayed in American media with that name and with an unblinking focus on how severe this disease can be for many.
Please consider sharing, tweeting, liking, and commenting on the story. We need to let ABC and the world know there's demand for stories like this.
As Dr. Klimas says in the piece: “What's fascinating about the film is the most difficult thing to get across to the medical community is how serious this disease is.”
Together, we can make that change in the world. With your support and generosity, we have raised over $90,000 and are within striking distance of raising $100,000 by tomorrow (Friday)—just ten days after the launch of our campaign.
