    Default "When I Walk"--about young filmmaker's MS--being shown on PBS

    Has anyone seen this documentary yet? When I Walk is about young filmmaker Jason Da Silva's MS and has been getting considerable attention. I haven't seen it yet but it will be aired on PBS in June:

    I saw it. Here was my post about it. http://joysofbraindamage.tumblr.com/...en-i-walk-film (My post contains slight spoilers. Be warned) IT WAS GREAT!! Anybody with MS should see it. I'll watch it on PBS again if I can.

    Thanks, funnylegs! I notice you mention how the movie helped you to understand that MS can affect all parts of the body. I have an impression that many people don't understand that as well. I'm glad to know that the movie contributes to better awareness.

    June seems a long way off but I'm going to make a note of it.

    Please, if anyone remembers this let us know ahead of time when it is coming on. I can make a note, but will forget where the note is.

    Thanks

    Looks as if it will be aired on PBS on June 23 at 10 PM but local listings on times and even days might be different.

    The PBS channel in my area apparently publishes its program schedule only two weeks ahead. I'll check back in early June.
