During the Hapa Japan Festival in Los Angeles in April, we (Jeff and I) had the distinct pleasure of meeting Ana and Isa Stenzel, twin survivors who braved Cystic Fibrosis for most of their lives.
Both young women have beat the odds by surviving not only the disease, but also double lung transplants. The film, The Power of Two (2011), follows Ana and Isa as they conquer Cystic Fibrosis and bring awareness to their disease not only to the public in the US, but to their mother’s homeland of Japan as well.
In talking with them, we found many similarities in our mission with Mixed Match and the work we are trying to accomplish through our films…to save lives.
