Vote for ‘Journey of Hope’!

Feb 22, 2020

A message from ‘Same but Different’:

‘Journey of Hope’ is a short film offering a glimpse in to the lives of families where children have received a rare genomic diagnosis. In a world where labels and diagnosis are often framed negatively, this film highlights the reality of both the search for a diagnosis and the impact of the diagnostic moment. Above all else it compels us to think about the power of genetic diagnosis to reframe how we view our relationships, how we understand each other and most significantly, how a different kind of ‘hope’ is possible.

Our film ‘Journey of Hope’, won best film in the Industry/Charity collaboration category at the Rare Disease Film Festival in Regent St London.

But we need your help!

Voting has now opened for the public to select their favourite film and we would love your support. As winners we could reach so many more people and show the rare disease diagnostic journeys, which is so important to ensure change happens.

Voting closes on the 28th February at 12pm GMT.
