Stories Lived

Day by Day

Cancer sucks… But one has to learn to accept it or it will eat you alive. I found acceptance through film and making movies. It offered an escape from the dreaded world of having chemo/radiation and content operations to my body. This is a short film on what I get up to do on a daily basis while battling cancer. I live and breathe for film and most importantly telling stories to help others find their strength in life.
