Link: 39 pounds of love

| | Comments (1)
HBO/Cinemax has produced a wonderful documentary of Ami Ankilewitz, who was born with the rare disease SMA/2. His mother was told he would only live to the age of 6 - she told the doctor that he was not G-d and that he could not say how long her child would have to live. Now, 34 and weighing only 39 pounds (and living and working in Israel as a CG animator), the film takes us on Ami's journey back to the United States to find his brother and the doctor who originally (mis)diagnosed him. Link added 2005.12.20.
