             What are we doing?

       We want to show the stories of survival on these individuals who have been able to overcome the obstacle of being told your facing “imminent death.” We also want to provide an inside look on their lives today and how there diagnosis has changed their lives for a life of success.

              How are we going to do it?

 In order to portray these stories we will be using a collage of stock footage, animations, reenactments, innovated short sequences and patient interviews. We want to share a message to all of hope that cancer can be beaten no matter how hopeless your diagnosis and prognosis is.

            Words from the Director.

     I was diagnosed in 2008 with a rare type of Brain Cancer called Diffused Pontine Glioma. The prognosis that was given to me for this type of cancer was from 6 months to 2 years. Even though I was given such a gloomy diagnosis and prognosis, I am still here. Not only am I still here but I also went from being a high-grade tumor to a low-grade level tumor. Talk about beating the odds!

                                              

                                                                            Hope

           Why are we doing this documentary?

 
I remember when I was diagnosed; I spent two days straight looking for stories and people who have survived no matter how bad the diagnosis with no avail to my search. I was looking so desperately for a window of hope that never came but my will to live was stronger and here I am today.
