Gary, Rubye & Aimie

Illness doesn’t just come to the one diagnosed, the whole family’s lives can change course.

Filmmaker Aimie Vallat responded to her father Gary’s diagnosis of Parkinsons with a beautiful documentary, PRESENT MOMENT,  that not only portrays his relationship with a chronic disease but reveals the family’s soul journey into resilience, honesty, and faith. The film got 7,000 hits in its first 24 hours on the Michael J Fox Parkinson’s website.

Come join this interactive community conversation on fear and resilience, isolation and family, and how to thrive in the presence of a challenging condition. While the Vallat experience applies to us all, we especially welcome families impacted by neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinsons, MS, ALS, and others with the hope of starting an ongoing healing circle.
