Two Springfield women star in this touching and informative documentary airing Friday on public television station WILL-TV. The show takes a rare look at the unusual relationship between Diana Braun, who has Down syndrome, and Kathy Conour, who had cerebral palsy and died Sept. 19. Some would call these two women profoundly disabled, but they moved mountains to promote disability rights and to live independently outside of institutions. Check your listings; WILL airs the program several times throughout the day.
