Thank you to all the early contributors. We have reached 11% of our goal!
Here is one of the most touching reactions we received from a viewer after watching the original 16-minute version of COACHING COLBURN:
“Just wanted to say thank you. My son has been diagnosed with fragile x. My partner is a carrier, and we always new the risks and what having an fx child would entail. However, nothing prepares you for the highs and lows of FX. In our bad days (we haven’t slept a night through in 3 years) it’s hard… really hard, but then he smiles and laughs and the world is wonderful again. My son is such a loving and happy child, but we do worry what the future holds for him. Your film showed me what a wonderful life Alfie can lead. In my darkest days when I worry about him, I now think of James and I know everything is going to be ok. So thank you from the bottom of my heart, you have given me hope and a goal to aim for.”
I can’t wait to share the new, 27-minute version of COACHING COLBURN, because I know it will be just as meaningful and inspirational. This fundraising campaign will allow us to clear the music rights, submit the film to top film festivals, and do the marketing that will eventually get it on television around the world.
