September 29th a group of us are heading to Des Moines to see Frank Ferrante in his movie May I Be Frank. May I Be Frank documents the transformation of Frank Ferrante’s life.
Excerpt from the website:
Frank Ferrante is a 54 year old Sicilian from Brooklyn living in San Francisco. A lover of life, great food, beautiful women and a good laugh, Frank is also a drug addict, morbidly obese, pre-diabetic, and fighting Hepatitis C. He’s estranged from his daughter, single, and struggling with depression. Frank knows that life can be better than this, and is looking for a way out.
That grabbed my attention and I decided I needed to see the movie.
Instead of marking off the calendar, making sure I had gas in the car and money for a ticket I decided to get a group of my friends involved.
I really wanted to have someone else drive. I wanted to go with people I liked. I wanted to have it be an experience that a group of like minded people would enjoy.
We needed a bus and a driver. One person said to get 40 people together, and they each pay 20 bucks and we could rent a big bus. Ahhh! A bus ….. and I thought of ABCM. ABCM is a Hampton based company that owns and operates numerous rehabilitation communities throughout the state of Iowa. My dad lives in one of those places. ABCM provided a bus for our Historical Tour of Homes last year.
So I asked them if they’d be a part of this experience. They said yes! So now we had a driver and a bus.
There are 20 seats on our bus. In a matter of days, we filled the bus. All women. I have dubbed us Wellness Warriors.
Stay tuned for a review of the movie and pictures at the end of the month.
