SYNOPSIS

Diana, Princess of Wales’ many struggles with depression led to her recurring eating disorder, bulimia nervosa. Manuel Uribe Garza, the world’s fattest man, weighs 1,235 pounds, his extreme corpulence largely attributing to challenges he faces like inability to move and walk. Kurt Cobain, an American musician, best known for his roles as lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for the rock band Nirvana, struggled with severe despondency, persistent bronchitis, and acute physical pain due to an undiagnosed long-standing stomach affliction. Many doctors guessing that it was either a result of some form of childhood disease or stress related, with none being able to pinpoint the specific cause by the time of his death.

Whether dis-ease of the mind causes disease in the body, or the reverse, the public’s fascination with medical mysteries is at an all-time high as they continue to give audience to such televised docu-dramas as Discovery Health, Diagnosis Unknown, and Mystery Diagnosis.

“Life Without A Fork,” is a 2-hr runtime documentary film that follows the real-life accounts of Vanessa Williams and co-stars, Emmy award winner, Deb Whitcas, Brian Holden, Shelline Ross, Heather Campbell, Jacqueline Griffin, Meredith Fallow, Bonnie Williams, and Solstice Jensen as they live with the rare non-hereditary form of the condition known as chronic Angioedema.

Chronic recurring idiopathic angioedema is an orphan’s disease that has been given very little analysis and research, and is idiopathic in that physicians do not know what causes it. This life-threatening condition is triggered by medications, dyes, environmental components, foods, trauma, and other elements that act as allergens, releasing histamine into the blood stream, and oft times causing anaphylaxis shock.

In addition to an extremely stripped down diet (usually mimicking anorexia and other necessary avoidances) the major treatment to date is large quantities of antihistamines on a daily basis; and when exacerbated, epinephrine injections and steroids (although these drugs prove to be ineffective for the rarer, Bradykinin form of Angioedema).

From the humorous to the emotional and from the practical to the educational, Life Without A Fork’s segments range from how to’s on maintaining a healthful lifestyle, history and timelines, food limitations, excessive weight loss and its physical impact, relevant support groups, and medical practitioners as well as information describing the need for and the process in getting legislature to recognize the rights, limitations, and special needs of sufferers of all forms of angioedema and mast cell disorders. There are testimonials from fellow sufferers, family, and friends and endorsements from such featured celebrities as Dolph Lundgren, star of the $350,000,000 grossing film, Rocky IV; Quinton Aaron, star of Oscar award winning movie, The Blind Side; Doug E. Fresh, a renowned founder of hip-hop and the iconic human beat box; Amin Joseph, star of Bay Watch; Chef and Food Network All Star, Debbie Lee, and more.

There are many people who have fallen prey to this condition and whose lives may be saved by making this infirmity as publicized and important as the more reputed diseases of Parkinson’s, Fibromyalgia, Diabetes, Cardiovascular, and the Big “C.”

In 2006, I was diagnosed with the rare and potentially fatal condition known as Idiopathic Angioedema, a histamine mediated condition that causes swelling and similar symptoms that can be brought on by little to no reason. Angioedema’s Idiopathic form is different from other forms of Angioedema in that it is not known to be of a hereditary accumulated and any specific genetic tie-ins and causes are generally unknown. A few years following my initial diagnoses I began to put intentional efforts towards advocating for cause and cure for both myself and all others that have been diagnosed with this detrimental condition. For the last eight years I have personally and with very little help, funded our advocacy efforts–in every spectrum, grown and withheld an international community base, spoken at health expos, in local schools and more about this condition, as well as written, filmed, edited, and produced a documentary film known as Life Without A Fork, telling the story of Angioedema. I have even lost my sister and many others from the condition and very recently discovered that, in addition to my nephew who was diagnosed before me, I have a brother, two sisters and an aunt who have all experienced both acute and chronic cases of idiopathic angioedema. In 2014 I coined the phrase, #The80Percent as a means of distinguishing our number and the need for right attention for the largest group of people living with this rare condition, the idiopathics! Our efforts to raise awareness round Idiopathic Angioedema and save lives, are in need of assistance! Supporting this entire advocacy all on my own is no longer an option as I am now disabled. With our 501(c)(3) non- profit organization being newly established, I appreciate any relating assistance that you may be able to provide, even sharing our efforts with your friends and family. Having started in 2009, advocating for this cause and producing a feature film has been a journey and then some! I am ill with the condition, #IdiopathicAngioedema, so it remains extremely challenging for me to forge on with taking this project to the finish line. I have been offered help, countless times and sometimes, it really gets me down when the follow-through doesn’t actually come. Oft times, it gets me to the point that I just want to say, with all the pleasantries I can muster, “no, thank you.” Doors opening and closing as quickly as the turn-style types to be found in mid-town Manhattan’s office buildings, I continue to persevere as I have finally completed, Life Without A Fork, documentary film! This project, while certain to impact audiences around the globe with its rich, vivid, and most certainly, shocking images, along with its bigger than life storylines, will also serve as advocacy to help save lives, yes, mine included, thank you very much! :), by getting some, ‘right attention,’ around #ChronicAngioedema. Absolutely a project that is near and dear to my heart, I work hard to find cause and cure for this potentially life-threatening disease. For my reward, God has not only been steadfast in his willingness to help me make this happen, he continues to remind me that, as per the great words shared by my mom, the late, Katie Tucker, “Every man is a golden link in the chain of my good.” And, although I may be flying without a net, it is through the endless source of support I receive from others, like you who are His angels and are amongst my family, friends, fellow-sufferers, fans, celebrity associates, and overall well-wishers, I fly forever on God’s wings.
