Marking the Distance

(YouTube link)

A new animation from the Rauch Brothers illustrates a Storycorps interview with Gweneviere Mann. Mann suffers from short-term memory loss, which affected her after surgery to remove a tumor. Here she tells us about some of the heartbreaks that come with the inability to remember. But with the support of boyfriend Yasir Salem, she's learned to work around her difficulties and reconcile herself to its permanency. Mann even finds some benefit in her disability, like finishing a marathon because she doesn't know how far she's run!  -Thanks, Krisi!
