MINNEAPOLIS--Living With Cancer: A Message of Hope, a conversation with some of the nearly 10 million US cancer survivors, debuts nationally on PBS, Friday, September 25, at 9:00 pm (check local listings).
Narrated by Anne Bancroft and filmed at the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, Rochester, Minn, this 1-hour documentary recounts the experiences of cancer survivors, including a 5-year-old leukemia patient and her parents, a cardiologist with testicular cancer, and an ovarian cancer survivor who celebrates "the miracle" of her daughters birth. In addition, leading oncologists share new cancer research and provide an overview of causes and preventive steps to lower cancer risk.
The film is being presented on PBS by KTCA-TV, St. Paul/Minneapolis. It debuts on the eve of The March . . . Coming Together to Conquer Cancer, a national cancer awareness event sponsored by the National Coalition for Cancer Sur-vivorship and others. It takes place in Washington, DC, and other cities around the country on September 26.
