About the Movie

On April 10, 2011, Allison W. Gryphon found a lump in her breast. On April 13th she was diagnosed with stage IIIa breast cancer. Her immediate instinct was to pick up a camera and start asking questions. Not only for herself, but for all of us. For many, cancer is a cell under a microscope. For others, it is a symbolic ribbon, a local fundraiser or a jar calling for help in the checkout line at the grocery store. Cancer is something different to each individual going through it. It’s all relevant. It’s all important. Cancer is about science, study and the practice of medicine, and most importantly, cancer is about people. What the F@#- is Cancer and Why Does Everybody Have It? is about understanding and celebrating those people. It’s about really hearing their voices and being invited to share those experiences in a way that will allow the viewer to walk away with inspiration, questions, knowledge and hopefully a desire to understand more and make things happen. This is a movie about learning what it means to fight cancer day-to-day, hour-to-hour, minute-to-minute.

Customer Reviews


This movie took the fear out of cancer for me and now I just want to learn more. I loved being educated through the voices of cancer-fighters, caretakers and doctors while simulataneously hearing Allison's wonderful story.


This is a deeply empowering film. If you're faced with a diagnosis it pulls back the veil, takes your hand and walks you through treatment and recovery. You can do this. You will find your way.

For friends and family it tells you how to be helpful in simple and profound ways. What greater gift than knowing how to be a blessing.

I wish I had this film during my brother in laws fight with ALS. It isn't just about cancer, its about how to face the unthinkable one day at a time

Honest, Informative, Magical

This movie taught me so much, not just about cancer, but about the resilience and kindness of the Fighters and those who support them. It is the movie you should watch if you or someone you know someone diagnosed with cancer. It doesn’t answer every question, it is however a magnificent place to start asking those questions.
