Go Bernadette!

http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?section=news/health&id=8674227


This is the latest news story about Bernadette Scarduzio, an amazing woman who also has CMT, like me.  4 years ago, she opened her life up to a film-maker and spent the next 3 years having her life filmed for a documentary about CMT.  The film is finally finished (yay!!) and is about to be submitted to film festivals all across the country.  I secretly really hope that it comes to Sundance....it would be such an awesome opportunity to see the film and to meet Bernadette here in my home state!


Here are some other links so you can read more about this amazing film:

Yay, a movie for us! I can't wait to see it! My fingers are crossed that it gets into Sundance. How long of a drive is it from California? :)

Doesn't even matter, I want to be there! :)

Lenka, I would LOVE for you to come out and see it with me if it comes here! Google maps says it's about 10 1/2 hours to drive from there to here.....I'd totally put you up and show you around! It would be so much fun!!

Yay! I'm so excited for Bernadette - she has worked so hard on this. And excited for the rest of us CMTers...CMT is going to go mainstream baby! :)

Melissa, how did you hear about this film? I sincerely hope that it makes it out into the open ... my husband and I have always entertained the idea of scripting a film about life with CMT, purely for the sake of information and inspiration.
I have CMT as well, and am delighted to have found your blog. Thank you for your willingness to share your stories!

Thanks Jess! I'm excited that you found my blog as well! I hope you'll get a chance to peruse some of the other blog links, as most are written by younger women with CMT as well. I'd love to connect and chat with you sometime....you can find me on facebook, or shoot me an email at mylifewithcmt(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks for reading! (PS....I'm in Utah, only about 8 hours from you!)
