About the Movie
Top-rated Lifetime movie! Dr. Dennis Slamon has reached a breakthrough in his career. He has helped to develop a new experimental drug called Herceptin, which he hopes will become a revolutionary treatment in the fight against breast cancer. However, when funding for his project is cut, Slamon must turn to philanthropists Lilly Tartikoff and Ron Perelman to help make his life's most important work a reality. With the backing of his new supporters, Slamon continues to perfect his treatment, but his new drug proves that while it has the ability to give life, it does not work for everyone. This gut-wrenching true story explores one doctor's difficult struggle to find a cancer treatment that can save thousands of lives while giving meaning to his own life.
I AM Living Proof
I am so glad this movie is finally available!!! I am a breast cancer survior and am on the drug Herceptin. This movie is a must see for everyone touched by cancer. It goes to show just how much research is being done to find a cure.
tear inducing film
If you buy or rent this i warn you to have tissues handy. This movie will make you cry, very, very hard. This is one of the most fantastic movies i've ever seen and it goes far beyond the normal tv-movie melodrama. Each character comes to life in crisp, picture perfect clarity. Each performance is gut-wrenching and the movie as a whole will make you cry. IF you have had cancer, know somebody that has or just have a heart this movie will get to you. I cried for three days after seeing this movie.
Inspirational and Enlightening!
Whether you know anyone who is a cancer survivor, or lost their battle to cancer, this true story will move you. The film is made for Lifetime, it's not high budget by any means, but Harry Connick Jr. is great, and a good cast will be more than enough!
