No Ordinary Campaign

  •   Christopher Burke
  •   United States

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. Given just six months to live, the otherwise healthy former athlete and lawyer at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago forms an awe-inspiring partnership with his wife to challenge the broken medical establishment and take to the halls of D.C. to fight for his life. No Ordinary Campaign follows Brian and Sandra as they move with astonishing speed to build a patient-led revolution and show us that victory is possible even in the face of seemingly impossible odds.
