What I See
The 2010 Neuro Flim Festival is going on now through March 17, 2010. The contest, held by the American Academy of Neurology Foundation, is an effort to bring awareness to neurological disorders. The films are created by people who have been affected in one way or another by neurological disease.
This film gives a sobering look at the way Lewy Body Dementia devastates families. I have watched this film and it is heartbreaking and hard to watch. Still, I encourage you to watch this film and then visit YouTube to rate the film.
A selection of films from this contest will be shown at the Neuro Film Festival in Toronto in April. Even amongst the specialists Lewy needs to be more prominent so this an opportunity to bring much needed attention to this disease.
