I need your help.
On May 5, 2012 we have the privilege of covering the second annual “A Fifth Season” fundraiser in Chicago, IL.
We shot a short documentary to premiere at the event, profiling three local families affected by Batten Disease (who are hosting the event to help fund further research into treatments and a cure). As we went through the highly emotional process of learning the ins and outs of these families and how to best convey their walk in life, we came to a cross roads while finishing up the trailer….
“Hope is the disease”
At the end of the video above, we attached the tag line “Hope is the disease”. Being that I’ve never had a family member diagnosed with Batten disease, I can’t quite grasp what that feels like. But, from where I stand, the phrase has great depth and significance.
Here’s where you help
- Watch the trailer
