My life turned upside down about a month ago when my journey went viral. I never expected to receive multiple phone calls (and a couple knocks on my door) from the big name news shows that millions of people watch/read on a daily basis. To say it was overwhelming for my husband and I would be an understatement. And we got through it, because of the wonderful team (especially Christina) at Media Minefield.
The day we met with them, it was like a load had been lifted from our shoulders. Christina called all the reporters back, scheduled some interviews and guided me through it all with a wonderful message map (I'm sure she did more than I ever knew about!). The map helped Steve and I to stay on track with what our exact message was. All of the interviews went well and nine people have gotten a correct diagnosis because of them!! Can there be anything better than that?!
Today I dropped off homemade cupcakes and flowers as a way to tell Christina and the rest of the team thank you, but it just didn't seem like enough. I want them to know that Steve and I got through this process in one piece because of them. And I have no doubt that we will look back on this in years to come with a smile on our face and gratitude in our heart.
Thank you Media Minefield!!!!! https://www.facebook.com/MediaMinefield?fref=ts
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
