"THE HASHIMOTO'S PROJECT"
BEA IS BUZZING!
WE ARE CURRENTLY IN PRE-PRODUCTION MODE WITH THIS TIMELY AND CRUCIAL DOCUMENTARY, "THE HASHIMOTO'S PROJECT," AND WE NEED YOUR ASSISTANCE.
YOU! If you or a loved one has been dealing with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and you want to share your story, insights, concerns and/or information, please be in touch by email here.
THE PROJECT: This project is focused on "the patients perspective" (what other perspective is there?) So, if you are ready to make a real difference, to finally be heard, to take a stand, to stop roaming the online health forums, to take this thing out of the dark ages, to see this problem tackled head-on and made right for the sake of future generations, then please lend your voice and shine some light. If you are camera shy and/or want to remain anonymous for some reason, you can share off camera. The main thing is that you DO SHARE, and you DO CARE. We will be chatting with people around the globe, some in person, some via Skype. Chances are, if you landed on this site, you probaby have a thyroid experience to share.
MISSION: "It is our sincere intention to bring this epidemic fully and truthfully into the light, thereby altering the current perception and intercepting the devastating trajectory of this insidious auto-immune disease. We are confident that this enlightening project will be instrumental in halting the accepted and deepening "norm" and will ultimately lead us in the direction of true healing."
- Donna-Lynne Larson*, Creative Director/Producer, "The Hashimoto's Project"(working title)
