In a small community in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, 33 people were diagnosed with rare brain and pituitary tumors. Their plight has been described in many newspaper stories but we’ve not heard their stories firsthand until McCullom Lake Films Producer Nathan Delack, a television news photojournalist, began filming their stories. Delack hopes to spread the word on his work because he’s hoping to raise $35,000 by early July to complete the film and secure placement in film festivals nationwide. Stew Cohen talks to Nathan Delack about this tremendous project.
Delack says that to pledge and view the emotional trailer, go to http://kck.st/1Kqunr2. Pledges of all amounts are appreciated. Those who pledge $25 or more will receive a digital download or hard copy of the film upon its completion. The Kickstarter campaign ends on July 10.
