WHAT WOULD YOU DO if, out of the blue, your life turned upside down?
Vancouver-based videographer Stuart Ellis-Myers will share his story of going from being a happy, healthy child to an “anxious, depressed, twitchy mess of devastating proportion” with the onset of Tourettes Syndrome.
Faced with the prospect of a lifetime of frustration, isolation, and shame – which can accompany Tourettes – Stuart instead chose to make his life into something spectacular!
