Jenny Farrell (Katherine Heigl) has led an openly gay life - except with her conventional family. When she finally decides to start a family and marry the woman they thought was just her roommate, the small, safe world the Farrell’s inhabited changes forever. They are left with a simple and difficult choice - either change with it or drown. 

Last November, MM Productions completed principal photography on the film “Jenny’s Wedding” and they are currently in post production. 

Made independently, this film is the kind of movie the studios used to make all the time. It is about real people, the problems they face, and the personal courage it takes to resolve them. It is also about transformation and love.

Both moving and funny, it has an important message to send, and our goal is to ensure it reaches a wide audience.

These are pictures of my daughter, Desiree. She is the love of my life. As many of you might already know she came into this world with a serious battle ahead of her.

At 2 months old she had her first brain surgery for hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain) with unknown causes. When we were discharged from the hospital she had very high blood pressure, was unable to turn her head, and urinated blood.

At 3 months old, the doctors found the cause- brain and kidney cancer. Prognosis 4-6 weeks to live. My 3 month old infant suffered thru high dose chemotherapy, kidney removal, 10 hour brain surgery, numerous transfusions, eye surgery, 30 days of radiation, months of bone marrow transplants, spinal chemo, etc. She suffered many cognitive deficits as a side effect. But eventually she went into remission.

For a year Desiree was okay. Then her respiratory health declined. Numerous bouts of pneumonia, RSV, bronchiolitis, etc. We were told she had interstitial lung disease because of the chemotherapy treatments.

For the sake of time I’ll wrap this up. My daughter just passed from respiratory failure. I’ll save the details because it was heartbreaking.

We want to honor my daughter and other children like her. I’ve donated all of Desiree’s medical equipment to children whom could use it. Her clothing has gone to women’s shelters. I want to honor my daughter. The Kindness Crew (on Facebook-my friends from high school and college) want to fund and donate a wheelchair accessible swing to the appropriate park here in buffalo.

If you are interested at all please donate to this cause. I love that they want to remember Desiree and help children like her.

Please can I have a moment?

This is a new commercial for Valentine’s Day in Brazil (which is celebrated in June) that the cosmetics and perfumery company “O Boticário” made. It is the FIRST time that a commercial with gay couples airs on TV.

The problem is Brazil is still a very homophobic country and the video is gaining massive number of dislikes. So I would like to ask for the help of tumblr to increase the number of likes. Please if you can help, it would mean a lot for Brazil.

the softer side of pit bulls

Pit Bulls are often portrayed as aggressive and untrustworthy breeds and are more infamous on the news for dog fighting and dog attacks than other reasons.

Photographer Sophie Gamand is trying to change that perception with a series called “Flower Power, Pit Bulls of the Revolution”. Well know for her series on Wet Dogs, Gamand handmade the floral headpieces to soften the tough and gritty images Pit Bulls are often portrayed in.

Flower Power not only strives to change the Pit Bull stereotype, but aims to increase adoptions of the breed. The models behind this photo series are all looking for loving homes.

You can find them through Second Chance RescueSean Casey Animal Rescue, and Animal Haven.

Flower Power prints are available for purchase with proceeds also going to these shelters.

Dreams do come true! Maybe not today Maybe not tomorrow Keep Dreaming Never give up

This is for a friend’s softball team. Most of the girls can not afford to go to prom. Many of them can barely afford the basic equipment to play softball or have to borrow the equipment from the school. These girls are some of the most hard working girls you will ever meet. The put 110% effort into everything they do wether it is on or off the field. Some of these girls come home after practice to act as the mother to the siblings while their parents are working as much as they can to put food on the table. These girls deserve a day to be a princess. Please help us help them fulfill their dreams of going to prom. It would mean the world to all of us. If you can’t afford to make a donation can you please share this link and spread the word any way you can? (reblog, post on twitter, post on Facebook, etc.)  Thank you so much in advance for all your help!

HELPING ONE OF OUR OWN …

One of the best things about running this blog is we meet a lot of fantastic people from various backgrounds and walks of life. Sometimes they’re fellow gamers, other times they are artists or developers and we are able to share their work and stories with everyone on the site.

Those stories could be comical or inspiring or they could be sad and heartbreaking. Today, I share with you a story of courage in the hopes that we can rally together and make a difference in a person’s life.

November of last year we got word that David Vigil of That Vigilante was diagnosed with stage III stomach cancer and that he needed donations so he could afford to get treatment.  

After getting the necessary donations, he was able to get treatment and he received a clean bill of health. It was exciting for him because he was able to continue creating and designing the things he loved and was able to move from Washington to California as well.

Around September this year though, David discovered that his cancer had spread to his pancreas and he now has stage II pancreatic cancer.

Once again David is asking for everyone’s help with donations so that he can get the treatment needed to get well. If you who have ever known someone with cancer or experienced it yourself then you understand the seriousness of this condition and why we are helping spread his message.

We are asking everyone here to share encouragement with David on Twitter or Facebook or, if you’re able, donate to his cause. Right now he needs the well wishes and positive vibes more than anything so that he can overcome this cancer and get back to creating more dynamic products like you see here.

Hey guys, so I know this isn’t usually what I post about but its something that’s important to me.

That’s Tommy. He’s the brother of one of my friends from Marching band; her name is Erika. Tommy is non-verbal and he has been confined to a wheel chair for his entire life. I’ve seen him at band events before and honestly; he’s such a happy kid.

Tommy is 19 now and he’s growing just like you and I are. Basically, it’s getting really hard to get him from place to place and it seems that the need as risen for a mini-van with a wheel chair lift. Erika and her mother are working to raise money because, quite frankly, they can’t afford to get one.

It’s a good cause and even if you can’t donate, it would mean a lot and would be really appreciated if you could hit reblog.

Thanks guys, really. :)

Help Tommy and his family! click here to donate!

This past weekend, my best friend’s big sister got into a terrible accident. Her front tire blew out, causing her to lose control of her car and flip several times. She has brain and spinal cord injuries, among other things, and is breathing with help from a respirator.

Savannah is a kind heart, and so strong. Each day she’s getting better an improving. She’s gradually starting to respond to doctors commands. Last night her sister asked her to squeeze her hand if she knew who she was and that she was there for her and Savannah nearly cut off the circulation in her hand because she squeezed it so hard. So far, she hasn’t been able to move her legs or wiggle her toes. She has some sensation in her left leg, so we have hope she will walk again, but only time will tell.

Savannah will be going through surgery on her back tomorrow, and would really appreciate donations to help pay for her medical expenses. They have already reached over $1,000 of their $10,000 goal. If you could do anything to help Savannah, her sister, and her mother it would be so appreciated! Please consider donating to her cause!

Even just reblogging helps! Thank you!
