Description

First and Only Film Screening in UK

Permission given by Stephen Gleason, American Footballer to show at Glyndwr University to raise awareness for Motor Neurone Disease.

Free event. Specifically tailored for students and staff at Glyndwr University but also employees in health and social care. People interested in understanding more of the impact of Motor Neurone Disease are welcome to attend this screening.

Gleason is an American documentary film released in 2016 covering 5 years in the life of the New Orleans Saints football defensive back. He was diagnosed with motor neurone disease at the peak of his career. Shortly after diagnosis, Gleason found out that his wife was expecting their son. The film charts Gleason from American Footballer to being reliant on assistive technology due to the progress of the disease.

This film is a must see for those who want to understand more of the impact from a chronic deteriorating disease on the person, family and friends.
