I agree! Did you see him on "Curb Your Enthusiasm?"


The One Winged Victory of Samothrace is a metaphor for our struggles, despite the odds, to keep steady and accept grace in the face of punishing adversity.

Good to hear from you, Coach. How are things going? Maybe the MJF show will be a way to introduce approaching PD with some humor along the way.

This was really funny. Can't wait to the show comes on.

Thanks for the post. Appreciate it and we're using it in our next Parkinson's group newsletter and going to share it during our next Parkinson's group meeting via video projector. This is too good to miss. I loved him in the "Good Wife" and this is so well done-I loved the not-so-sly poke at Rush Limbaugh via the teacher who said the daughter's video report was "manipulative."

I showed my DH the trailer when they posted it on Facebook. He was laughing and crying through the whole thing, good crying, lol. We can't wait til it airs, my hubby can totally relate and loves the sense of humor, it helps in coping with the PD.
And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. -Revelation 21:4

I love MJF and feel he a great inspiration. I think the show definitely is funny. The only thing I worry about it it sending too
light of a message to the general public about PD. For those with PD, I feel it is a great show as sense of humor is a way of
coping.

For donation and spreading the word about the seriousness of PD, I think a drama would have been a better choice.

I'm excited about the show, but I wonder how well it will go over with general public who might not fully understand the PD humor because they can't relate to it. I hope it does well and stays on the air.
