Little help? MS Video of Hope in film festival needs votes

Postby ActiveMSers » Fri Feb 25, 2011 11:08 am

At the urging of a fellow active MSer (who has an uncanny knack for steering me right), I have entered my MS Video of Hope—condensed to 5 minutes—into the 2011 Neuro Film Festival, an annual contest hosted by the American Academy of Neurology Foundation. The public (i.e., you guys) can vote for the “Fan Favorite” through March 8, 2011. The leading vote getter will be screened this April at the Neuro Film Festival in Honolulu during the Academy's 63rd Annual Meeting, which is the world’s largest meeting of neurologists with more than 10,000 attendees.

Here’s where I need your help. With your assistance—forward this link to friends, Facebook it, Tweet about it, put it on the side of a blimp, oh, and vote—we can open up a can of Whoop MS on the AAN and get this message across to a gaggle of neuros. There are other MS videos, but this is the only one that focuses on cutting-edge research. And I may be biased, but it's the best and definitely worth viewing. :)

Please help spread the word on the importance of multiple sclerosis research. “Hope and a Clinical Trial to Halt MS” needs your support in the 2011 Neuro Film Festival. Vote for it at the below link by 3/8!

Out of the over 100 entries, I am currently in third place with almost 10,000 votes! I trail only a video about Arachnoid Cysts and one about Huntington's Disease. I still need your help and we are running out of time. If you feel my short film is worthy, please vote. Thanks!

It looks like my short film has inched into first place with nearly 15,000 votes! Voting closes March 8, and with only a lead of a couple hundred, it'll go down to the wire.... Thanks again everyone! — Dave

I wanted to thank everyone for their votes. Hope and a Clinical Trial to Halt MS won the fan favorite award as the top vote getter with over 33,000 votes! (Um, there may have been some Chicago-style irregularities to get THAT many votes.) It's great that this message has received so much attention.

For those interested, there is a longer version of the video that I think is more powerful and features a closing highlighting just what those of us with MS are capable of doing.
