Survivors Film by Errol Morris
I cried. My earth-moving-always positive-happy-God loving-genious-creative cousin Jonathan died at 36 years old this past January 2008 from Liver Cancer. Only 4 months. I saw him take his last breath. I was so moved by this piece. I felt the stories and emotion of each person. Errol Morris captured the spirit & message beautifully. Jon left behind a wife & 15 month old daughter..and a legacy of love, memories and life of courage. And like the characters in this film...we that are left behind survive to fight another day for a cure. Thanks for this story. Stand up to Cancer. Sounds good to me. --Stacia
As a Survivor of ALL
It is always strange to see the connection we survivors have, my words are his words, and her words..... The Suvivors movie also allows us to see the other side...that being the thoughts and feelings of our families, and friends.... With awareness comes change.... Thank you SU2C... This is The Beginning of The End of Cancer.....
This is a touching podcast and the short film brought tears to my eyes. Everyone should see this.
