What a tough time Cheryl! I should have spread the word around more….. She is so good at this. I hope more video’s are in the future.

Absolutely incredible! Thank you to everyone involved in making this video and matching it with the perfect song. This will likely be circulated again and again and far more people will view it than any of us could ever imagine. It is the internet version of the traveling exhibit of “Faces” but with the advantage of reaching a much greater audience. Watching this video brought tears to my eyes because it manages to show the depth of suffering while still providing a ray of hope, a rare combination and a major accomplishment. I too hope there are more of these videos in the future. What a brilliant piece of work this is! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I thought so as well, Pat. I will send your comments on to her.

Y’all mean so much to me. And this video is uber-wonderful. The music hits just the right note. Bravo.

Thank you Cort, Teej Kay, and everyone. Your work is already helping me feel supported, a rare commodity in ME/CFS Land, and I believe your work will help make miracles happen.

Blessings for All.
24 years with ME/CFS
