“Body & Soul: Diana & Kathy” is an hour long, award winning documentary, which screened on PBS and will be re-broadcast this fall. It tells the story of two women, life-long companions, who defy expectations by living independently and advocating for people with disabilities. Diana, with Down syndrome, and Kathy, with cerebral palsy, use humor, determination, and their friendship to create a unique family unit that surprises people at every turn.
Sadly, Kathy has since passed away, but their unique film has been invited to screen in Uzbekistan this November. The director is raising money to bring Diana to speak and show people in Uzbekistan how a person with Down Syndrome can be a fully integrated, contributing member of the community.
