Thank you Sunshine for posting these videos.

Yes, the tears were flowing down my face... tears of joy, gratefulness and relief! What an amazing story, and what a great lady.

I was just watching the second video, as Annette was discussing her "naive" 2006 goal sheet. Then I gazed up at the TV (the sound was off) and saw the word FIBROMYALGIA written across it. It was a Lyrica commercial. How unrealistic would that have seemed 4 years ago?

The timing was uncanny. It felt like some serious foreshadowing of things to come.

The WPI is lucky to have Annette Whittemore as the CEO. I wonder if she will report on her discussions with the NIH representative, Dr. Shurin.

Wow thanks for posting! Great speeches and Andrea's speech made me feel really emotional. It is great to see these concrete signs that we're moving forward.
