Dear David,

Thanks so much for allowing the National Brain Injury Foundation (NBIF) to screen your film “Going the Distance: Journeys of Recovery” at the Uptown Theater in Utica last Saturday. I’m delighted to report that it was a huge hit: the audience loved it. Several TBI survivors mentioned that this is the first time they have seen their own story told in a film. Many expressed how moved and inspired they were by your survivors’ stories, their courage and determination as well as the family love and other support they received. Many also expressed admiration for how engaging and well-made the film is as a whole.

Members of NBIF discussed how important it is that you remind audiences how relatively fortunate your TBI survivors are. But it is equally important to show such inspirational portraits of survivors with the ingredients of a successful recovery from brain injury. Your beautiful and hopeful documentary will be a tremendous resource for all of us working to raise awareness of TBI. Thanks, again, for the opportunity to screen it and we hope that many of our attendees will make tax-deductible donations to your completion.

Warm regards,
Lisa Marie Jones
