I just returned from New Orleans where I met my fellow patient Steve Gleason. It was a remarkable and memorable encounter with a local hero, who s thoughts and ideas are an inspiration for everyone.
They call their foundation Team Gleason, and a team it is… Overwhelmed by the love and energy surrounded in their home, my drive for patient empowerment is boosted with rocket power that hopefully leads to Steve’s desired journey to the moon.
Not carrying a white flag, but armed with the wishes & demands of patients, who are already waiting for 144 years for clues that lead to a treatment for this ruthless disease, to plant there.
You should all watch the documentary film about Steve’s and fellow patient Kevin Swan’s heroic tour to Machu Picchu, Peru, a true story with a “never give up” script and a cast of real friends, loving family and learn why Perseverance is written with a capital P.
As from now I will carry No White Flags on my journey finding the way…
