Jack has cancer is the story of life, friendship and overcoming the obstacles we face together.

Jack has Cancer is a documentary film about the far reaching effects of a devastating disease and the strength friendship provides to overcome any obstacle.

Jack Hoskinson, 22, is a Harvard student; he wrestled all throughout high school, has dreams of becoming the future President of the United States, is an all around great guy, and believed he was in the peak of health. One day, at a routine check up, he was informed of a lump on his neck that needed to be biopsied. Upon this biopsy he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a malignant form of cancer. Jack has always had a large network of friends and family who have supported him throughout his life. It was this large network of friends that rallied together, and tried to devise a plan to support Jack. Jack has always been my best friend. I decided the best way I could help out my best friend was to take the support of all those around him and compile it in a testament of the impact that Jack has made on the lives of his friends and in turn the impact cancer can have on everyone.

This film isn't just about Jack having cancer, and going through all the medical treatments involved, but is also about how cancer spreads out and affects individuals and communities alike. This project shows how much Jack Hoskinson means to the world.

I have always wanted to create a film that would impact an audience, but this is no longer about making a film. This project is about honoring Jack and showing the world that while cancer is devastating, it can also be defeated by having a strong support system.
