Regular blog readers will remember that for several years now a documentary film crew has been following the story of the Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome Network and our quest to find a treatment. This is a pic of me with Nicole Newnham and Dr. Maren Grainger-Monsen, the film makers who have made the film. In the end, they named it "RARE."
I am very pleased with how the film turned out. I can hardly wait to be able to use it as an outreach and fundraising tool.
