FOR LOVE & LIFE: NO ORDINARY CAMPAIGN is a documentary film that follows Brian Wallach, who at 37, was diagnosed with ALS on the same day he and his wife Sandra brought their youngest daughter home from the hospital. With major support from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the film highlights Brian and Sandra’s fight to remake a healthcare system for their own future — and for the millions of other patients living with rare and neurodegenerative diseases.

Nearly 7,000 rare diseases, including ALS, affect 300 million people worldwide. CZI’s Rare As One Project supports patient advocates like Brian who are leading groundbreaking movements to find treatments and cures for rare diseases. Presented by Amazon MGM Studios, a LIMA CHARLIE PRODUCTION, “FOR LOVE & LIFE: NO ORDINARY CAMPAIGN” will debut on Amazon on May 28. Watch the trailer here.
