    It's great to see this coverage. Jennifer Brea is a compelling leader. Super smart, articulate, down to earth and very attractive. I just hope her illness allows her to continue and that she does not overdo it.

    This segment really got some notice. I had messages from many friends today who had seen it--non-patient friends! :)

    As Jennie Spotila posts in Go Big or Go Home, “We’ve longed for and dreamed of widespread public attention to the realities of having ME/CFS. Canary In A Coal Mine could deliver.”

    ABC provide the video here. It's different to the Trailer I posted in the Phoenix article here I think. Shows more information. Rather good. Must be additional footage :)
