Thanks and congratulations to Allison London for her excellent Op Ed in the May 19 New York Times entitled “Disease and the Public Eye” where she discusses her experience with dystonia and thoughts on disease awareness. We join with others in expressing our gratitude to Ali for sharing her story so that others might learn more about dystonia and how it changes the lives of those affected. It takes courage and commitment to open yourself up like this. Thank you to Ali and everyone who has shared their dystonia stories. You are our "celebrities" and we thank you!
