We are thrilled to announce that Often Awesome the series is a finalist for Best Documentary Series in The Webby Awards! Often Awesome the series is a web series that follows Timothy LaFollette who was diagnosed at 29 with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) in 2009. We created 34, 10-minute episodes from diagnosis to his passing. Often Awesome the series chronicles a beautiful tale about love, hope, community, friendship and courage, in the face of daunting challenges and deep loss.

Tim wanted to participate in this series to raise awareness about ALS and to show the horror of the world's best kept secret disease. He did his job well! It is now up to us to get his story out to as many people as possible and the best way to do that is to vote daily for Often Awesome the series for The People's Voice Award of The Webby's. This award is the Oscars for the web and can bring light to such a dark subject.

Often Awesome the series is nominated along with programs produced by PBS, the Sundance Channel, and the Independent Film Channel, all of whom have professional marketing teams at their disposal. That's why Often Awesome the series needs your help.

We urgently ask you to vote for Often Awesome the series and to share this opportunity with your friends, family, co-workers, Facebook, Twitter, linkedin, Google+, reedit, message boards, blog it and anywhere else that you have a voice.

Not only do we want to educate people about the horror of ALS, we want to introduce the world to Tim. He was a one-of-a-kind talent freak with a heart open for the world. This story will not only bring you to tears, it will make you smile about the beauty of humanity.
