99 to 1: Ovarian Cancer and Me

Today I am cancer free but not without scars. 99 TO 1: OVARIAN CANCER AND ME, is a personal  journey through my diagnosis, my grandmother's death from ovarian cancer, my physical and emotional reactions to chemotherapy treatment and my hopes for the future. Using experimental technique and the fragments of my cancer archive, I wanted to make a film that reminds us that while sometimes being the exception is tough, it can also lead to strength you never expected.  The film was shot, edited, written and narrated by me: the quirky survivor.  The inspiration for this project was to break the silence that often accompanies gynecological cancers and the correct the misperception that ovarian cancer only effects older women.  This was a film created to help heal--both myself and anyone who has been touched by the pain of cancer.
