A friend of mine, Andy Coon, runs the Often Awesome series and is a finalist for Best Documentary Series in The Webby Awards. Often Awesome the series is a web series that follows Timothy LaFollette who was diagnosed at 29 with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) in 2009. Andy created 34, 10-minute episodes from diagnosis to his passing and chronicles a beautiful tale about love, hope, community, friendship and courage, in the face of daunting challenges and deep loss.
This story will not only bring you to tears, it will make you smile about the beauty of humanity. If you’re as moved as I am by the trailer above, please vote for for the project:
