Amy’s Entry in the Neuro Film Festival

Posted by | Uncategorized | One Comment

I created this documentary for the 2012 Neuro Film Festival in memory of my father who passed away from ALS, also know as Lou Gehrig’s disease, in 2009.  It chronicles my family’s story after my dad was diagnosed with the disease. You can watch the video below and then be sure to vote for it here.  Help raise awareness for ALS by sharing the video with your friends.

Thank you for watching and helping me bring awareness to this important cause.


UPDATE!  IF my video wins, one lucky winner will become the owner of a sweet pair of Persol sunglasses worth $250!!!  Help my video get the most views and when the video wins, check back here and I’ll give you instructions to win the glasses.  HUGE thanks to my friend Jose for graciously donating the sweet specs in order to help me raise awareness for a very important cause.  Start spreading the word and these glasses could be yours!!

Okay so it’s no secret I’m not a huge fast food junkie.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the taste of it.  I just can’t eat it often if I want to maintain my girlish figure.  However, I got the chance to celebrate the launch of McDonald’s new Chicken McBites where Salt ‘n Peppa were set to perform and I jumped on the opportunity!  I ate quite a few boxes of those tasty little nugs but hey, you burn ’em off dancing to throwback 90’s tunes!

Ya’ll know I have a soft spot for children’s charities and anytime I can lend a hand, I will.  It was really cool to attend Lights, Camera, Cure a 48 hour dance marathon that benefited The Four Diamonds Fund, which provides financial support for families fighting against pediatric cancer.  It was a jubilant day of dancing and mingling.  Though I didn’t win the diamond ring I bid on at the silent auction (happy I was outbid, that’s good for the charity!) I had a great time shakin’ my groove thang along with countless thousands all in the name of helping others.
