Harry Henderson, Marty Mann, and Bill Wilson
Brighton Hospital would like to invite anyone who has an interest in drug/alcohol addiction to join them for the 100% made in Michigan charity screening of Annabelle and Bear, a movie which dramatically depicts the story of a lovable young girl caught in the web of parental heroin addiction, deception and danger. The Benefit Screening in Detroit at the Music Hall on April 17, 2010 at 8 pm, will benefit a free Children's Addiction Prevention Program at Brighton Hospital, Brighton MI. This program helps to prepare and protect at-risk 7 to 12 year olds who are growing up in families with a parent, sibling, grandparent or other in the home who is actively addicted or in recovery.
Later in April, Winona Ryder plays Lois Wilson (cofounder of Al-Anon), Barry Pepper plays Bill Wilson (cofounder of Alcoholics Anonymous), in the Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation When Love Is Not Enough: The Lois Wilson Story, premiering Sunday, April 25, 2010 on CBS. Spanning more than 30 years, this movie is based on the true story of the enduring but troubled love between Lois Wilson, and her alcoholic husband Bill Wilson.
Pioneers like Lois Wilson and Bill Wilson created a path to recovery for millions of people who suffer from drug and alcohol addiction, and the families who love them. Brighton Hospital's founder, Harry Henderson, had much help and involvement in the establishment of Brighton Hospital from Bill Wilson. Where would Brighton be today without their help and guidance? Their history is our history.
