Nov. 22, 2012 - PRLog -- With less than 3 weeks to go until its deadline, 24weekers.com is rallying its online troops and followers to help make the funding happen.

Alan Entwistle, the film’s writer and director and who’s child, Jack, the story surrounds said ‘The story is emotional and doesn’t shy from some of the very difficult subject areas – no question - but it’s a film about family – a testament to the support we all can give each other and a testament to the NHS and the incredible work they do. It’s powerful, yes, but full of hope and love.’

The film’s Facebook presence has been racking up new followers at around 100 a week which Alan and his wife Karen are hopeful will increase even further as the news spreads.
