My Latest Project: The Genetics of Hope
When I was diagnosed at 14, my disease didn’t even have a name.
The challenges we face are still immense, but the progress is undeniable. Now, I am is turning the camera on myself and others in the community to reflect on how we got to this breakthrough moment in genetic medicine, and what this era of improved knowledge and tools means for all of us at risk to genetic illness.
In the next 3 years our team hopes to follow these and 10 other stores where we show this true and evolving story about hope and genetics! And on a personal level this entire 3 year journey is about enriching my self-love of myself — my body, my love and my spirit — to truly heal and I live the rest of my life with COMPLETE passion and purpose! I am overwhelmed even by my own exaggeration by what is possible!
