"I watched your inspiring story last night on Netflix. I was aware of your story prior to the film being release. Hearing your own voice tell your story and to visually see the re-enactments brought so many emotions. It gave me chills, it made me cry, it made me believe in love again and to know nothing is impossible. After watching your film I fell I have a renewed hope and inspiration to keep fighting on my own journey to recovery. Thank you, Chris."
