This is a great presentation/speech. I hope you can watch and share it! It really needs to go viral! Hopefully the correct video will play. It is a TED talk about mental illness and community.

Thought you all might like to know about Hollis Sigler. I’m just reading her Breast Cancer Journal right now. I’m not going to write a whole bio here, but just wanted to alert you to her work. She is best known for her images that relate to her struggle with breast cancer. Her story is very moving. Check out more about her at the Hammer Gallery and here.
