Vote for ‘Journey of Hope’!
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!
