Portugal/Spain/US, 2016, 70 mins
The indomitable Dr. Maria Miller’s journey from Spain to the US is one of resilience, perseverance and the joy of life. When she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis decades ago, it meant a crippled, short life. As a doctor, she worked to find alternatives. Today she is a vibrant woman with a loving family. ProjectMAD follows her as she meets children in Central Florida who have been diagnosed with RA today. These children still have a long road ahead of them, but through the concerted efforts of doctors and researchers supported by caring communities, they no longer face the sentence of crippled limbs and shortened lives that Dr. Maria Miller did as a young girl.
