The Swell Diaries

03.20.17 | PEACE. BE STILL.

I have had a great deal of people openly express the new energy that has come with this New Year.

Within the first 25 days of the year alone so many things, major to the world at large, has transpired. There has been an inauguration of a new president of the United States.

A, “Million Woman’s March,” that brought with the energy needed for the newer female leaders to come, that far exceeded any other such rally in history—thereby, almost effortlessly, becoming an event to write into her-story, unto itself.

A unique Summer Solstice, lunar eclipses, solar eclipses, meteor showers and many other world-altering events that have happened to shape my personal journey.

I have become a world-class presence with a force of peace and love that I have not been able to restrict to any one person, place or agenda.

A global advocate for the rare condition, idiopathic angioedema (as well as the best in mental health), I have already taken my outreach throughout the Hollywood, San Diego, Orange County, Long Beach, and Los Angeles regions of Southern California as well as the five Burroughs of New York City, and have been fortunate enough to touch many more lives and give hope to countless new people surviving this life threatening condition.

More people have been able to find us on social media and I have made myself personally available to countless others both in person and by telephone.
I love what I do and the opportunities I am afforded with helping even one more person get through a day with angioedema, mast cell activation disorders, urticaria or any other chronic condition.

Being challenged with idiopathic angioedema, having more near death experiences than I can remember, swelling and not being able to tolerate foods for periods that would have defeated even the strongest, even rugged of men, becoming disabled and unable to earn money for food for myself or my child, these things were necessary for me to become this woman with the amazing new abilities I now feel I have and is what will drive me and strengthen my ways of caring for others as we go into 2018 and beyond. #TheFutureIsNow!

IAE Dreams Come True

Help make someone’s dreams come true 2017 and beyond with Life Without A Fork’s Precious Collectible Dolls! Absolutely adorable and great feel-good companions for the heart!On 18 December 2016 and just in time for the holiday season, Global Angioedema Advocate, Vanessa Williams, met with and gifted the Life Without A Fork Collectible Doll, Kelsey, to beautiful 18-year-old hereditary angioedema survivor, Victoria Inamagua, in Hollywood, California!

Per Vanessa Williams recommendation, Victoria had successfully travelled from Mineappolis, MN to San Diego, CA to see leading angioedema specialist, Dr. Marc Riedl. It was a great visit overall for Victoria and it took a lot, financially and physically, for her to make both trips, to see Dr. Riedl and to have the opportunity to meet with Vanessa Williams in Hollywood who later received this text from her mom, Nina Riechard, “It was so great to see you! And thank you so much for EVERYTHING!!!! You are officially another mom for Vikki! We will definitely be keeping in touch…”

Your support is vital in enabling us to continue our advocacy efforts! By donating $250 or more you will receive one of our beautiful antique treasures to keep for your personal enjoyment or you may also gift your doll to a charity or child of your choosing who may be living with angioedema, mast cell activation disorders, urticaria, anaphylaxis, Crohn’s and any other chronic invisible disability.

We need media attention around our outreach efforts like, yesterday! Please contact your local news media, churches, and health food chains, as well as your favorite talk show and radio show hosts, bloggers, YouTube personalities, and more, and mention the great work Vanessa Williams has been doing for so very many years as well as the importance of our cause for #AngioedemaCure. It really does take a village!

We appreciate your ongoing support!

Documentary

“LIFE WITHOUT A FORK,” DOCUMENTARY FILM | ONLINE MOVIE PREMIERE | BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

ALL NEW MOVIE! SAME STELLAR CAST!

FEATURING |
DOUG E. FRESH | DOLPH LUNDGREN | AMIN JOSEPH | QUINTON AARON | JAMES BLACK | CHEF DEBBIE LEE | AND MORE! MORE! MORE!

Imagine living life where you couldn’t eat 98% of the world’s foods! Or, having to hide often because you looked, um, weird because, one moment, you’re looking and feeling, “normal,” but suddenly, and for what appears to be no reason at all, you find yourself unable to breath, swelling and becoming distorted in the features–that would be straight out of a movie, yes?! And, yes, that would be the, “Life Without A Fork,” movie! Told from the point of view of survivors with varying forms of angioedema, and from all over the globe, and inclusive of emotional support from some heavy hitting celebrities, we bring to you this film so that it may be used as a tool for learning to survive idiopathic angioedema, provide a sense of comfort in knowing that, as in the case with 81-year-old co-star, Jackie griffith, one can live a long time while living with an affliction that seems to threaten one’s life almost daily and, far too often, multiple times throughout any one given day.

There are some people who are going to join us on this documented journey through Swellville because they can relate–they have angioedema, mast cell activation disorders, hives and anaphylaxis, just like much of the cast in our film! Emmy Award winning producer and co-star, Deb Whitcas, does well in articulating how scary things became for her due to an over-exposure to peanut butter (seriously, cool woman and the best story–Deb is high energy, she’s Hollywood!) ;)) Many others will watch along because they have family members, friends and other loved ones who are living with the above-mentioned chronic conditions and want to know what others are doing to live with and manage these situations, as well. And, finally, others spectators will find these disorders the fascinating, bizarro rare, unpredictable, genetically modifying and expanding (genetic tie-ins being a huge proponent of what our advocacy’s research is pursuing) that they are and more!

Starring the film’s creator, writer, producer and global advocate for the rare conditions, idiopathic angioedema, and mast cell activation disorders, Vanessa Williams, along with leading angioedema specialist and head researcher of US HAEA Center at UCSD, San Diego, Dr. Marc Riedl, life without a fork is the first ever feature length film of it’s kind.

This online screening for the film, prior to its red carpet release, will be hosted on 21 – 30 November 2017 from 11:00 PM PDT!.

Email registration (this will automatically be done via, Eventbrite), as well as consent for nondisclosure–see below–required to obtain link to film to be sent up to two days prior to the day of the big affair! We’ve got some festivals we will be attending during this time and some of the entry rules are strict around screenings.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Upon ticket purchase, you are agreeing to the nondisclosure terms for viewing the film.

You will be allowed to watch the movie wherever and with whomever you like and we absolutely encourage you to hold your own viewing parties!!! Great opportunity for individual fundraising for your personal living and health needs! Schools, churches, hospitals, pubs, or from the comforts of your sofa or bed–all dolled up or PJ’s, large groups or alone (May be a bit of a tear-jerker with some shocking scenes so there is that to consider when thinking about this last option), we hope you’ll enjoy, identify with and possibly learn from all the hard work that has gone into this project and bringing awareness to the rare, potentially fatal conditions of recurring idiopathic angioedema, Bradykinin mediated angioedema, anaphylaxis, urticaria and mast cell activation disorders.

#MayYourSwellsForeverBeMinimalAtMost.
