A few weeks ago I was approached by my friends Jo Stratton & Sander Jansen to help them with videography and photography for a Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Kickstarter campaign to raise awareness about MS and fund MS research in hopes of finding a cure. This was my first time tackling such a task but I was honored to partake in this.
Jo’s father David Stratton, AKA Dr Dave, was diagnosed with MS in 1996 and is now wheelchair bound. He still finds ways to live his life to the fullest but MS has definitely taken its toll on him.
Jo and her husband Sander are trying to raise funding to print a set of children’s books that tell the stories of challenges that her father had to tackle. Jo did all of the writing, and her talented husband did all of the illustrations.
All proceeds beyond the printing costs will go towards the funding of MS research.
You can check out their Kickstarter campaign here and watch the short 3 minute video that we compiled together.
