I would like to thank Stephen, Alison, Paula, Bruce, Judy, Ilana, the film crew, the PPTG cast and everyone else that helped to transform this presentation (Maximum Will) into a reality as it has been a great life changing experience. This opportunity for us to come together and participate in an environment such as this one is challenging in the best sense. Thank you for making me believe and giving me something to look forward to.
