Steve Gleason has put a lot of work into a project that started as a video journal for his son, Rivers. It's grown into a full blown feature length documentary film. Steve said, on the Team Gleason website, "Although it has been a uniquely difficult journey at times, we believe it is an important message to share. Our film is not just focused on living with ALS, but on a more universal story, exposing the resilience of the human spirit, when faced with extreme adversity.The hope is that this film will be a catalyst for positive change and choices for those who face major challenges in life."

The film, "Gleason", will make its debut, and compete at the Sundance Film Festival this January. The festival was founded by Academy award winner Robert Redford, as a forum for independent film makers to showcase their work and compete for awards in multiple categories. Best of luck, Steve!
