Let Us Begin (USA, 14 minutes)

Directed by: W. Brandon Bray

'Let Us Begin' chronicles the re-calibration of the Porter family, after their lives are interrupted by Debbie Porter's diagnosis with Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS) on May 18, 2009. At this time, there is no known cure for ALS, and while life expectancy of an ALS patient averages about two to five years from the time of diagnosis, those numbers mean nothing to Debbie. She is determined to beat ALS as she did cancer.
