The Catalyst for GwG: Cortina

One of the inspirations for the creation of Grappling with Grief was a documentary produced by GwG founder Jimmy Van. It was an idea he came up with after his father was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Producing that film helped Jimmy channel his grief into something positive.

This is the trailer for that documentary, entitled “Cortina.”
