Director Statement :
I made this with a great deal of hope and naivety that sharing my experience with Cancer might be of help or act as a resource to others overwhelmed with something life changing like this. To simply put it, I wanted to make something that I wish was around when I was burdened with a very grim cancer prognosis. As well, It also an honest human story for any audience.
Plus it’s Animated! So that’s fun!
