Neuromuscular and Clinical Neurophysiology (EMG)
Chicago power-couple Brian Wallach and Sandra Abrevaya, who met and fell in love during the 2008 Obama campaign, found their world upended by Brian's diagnosis of ALS when he was only 37. They went from being only a few years removed from both working at the White House to not knowing if Brian would live to see his 40th birthday.
NO ORDINARY CAMPAIGN is the story about what happened next. It is a story about love, turning hope into action and seemingly impossible victories. A story about how one couple's fight to reclaim their future has snowballed into a movement not only for the ALS community, but for millions of patients seeking to find their voice in our broken healthcare system.
Despite the life-and-death subject matter, it's a love story about a couple of underdog heroes who show us that victory is possible even in the face of impossible odds.
