Living With Parkinsons
This short documentary co-produced by Michael J. Fox provides a glimpse into the daily realties of living with Parkinson’s disease.
“Overcoming” is a short film from Anna Mayer Studios that looks at the incredible journey of perseverance and hope of a talented dog photographer. Barbara Breitsameter is an award winning dog photographer who’s career almost ended when she was diagnosed with Parkinsons disease. She was determined to find a way to overcome her disease and still take wonderful dog photographs. The ability to Improvise, Adapt and Overcome is something I learned in the Marine Corps and I’m glad to see that Barbara learned it as well so she can continue to share her photos with the world.” To see more by Anna Mayer visit Little Studio Creative” where “Little Studio Creative” links to littlestudiocreative.com.
