U.S. Pain is sponsoring the upcoming feature-length film, Becoming Incurable, which follows the lives of three patients living with incurable illnesses. Filmmaker Victoria Suan believes that by sharing their stories, she can help create awareness for the hundreds of millions of individuals who suffer from chronic illness.
As part of the collaboration between U.S. Pain and Becoming Incurable, Suan recently created a four-minute film highlighting the stories of several U.S. Pain staff members and volunteers: Michaela O’Connor, Katie Golden, Terry Craig, and Julian Phillips. To see the video, click here.
U.S. Pain is pleased to announce it will be sponsoring an exciting new film project, “Becoming Incurable.” The film explores the stories of three patients living with incurable diseases: dystonia, ankylosing spondylitis, and lyme disease.
Victoria Suan, the film director, says the first iteration of the film, “Inside Incurable Lives,” was, in part, inspired by U.S. Pain.
“When I found out U.S. Pain Foundation wanted to sponsor my film, I couldn’t have been more thrilled,” says Suan. “Not only did this mean the film would be exposed to the chronic illness community at large, but that I could also hire an editor to begin post-production.”
