The City of Carmel will bring to a close its observance of National Disability Awareness Month with a special showing of the documentary “Grateful: The Jenni Berebitsky Story” on the Midtown Plaza screen. The movie, which tells the story of a woman debilitated by ALS, will be shown four times March 31, and is presented by the Carmel Advisory Committee on Disability.
“Grateful: The Jenni Berebitsky Story’ tells the story of a woman debilitated by ALS who chooses to face her prognosis with gratitude, courage, honesty, and humor. Supporting Berebitsky is her “Village,” family members and a large group of volunteers. Through her actions, words, and a beautiful smile, Berebitsky shows us how to live an engaging, productive, and meaningful life while dealing with extreme adversity.
