Last summer, a bunch of young adults whose lives had been touched by Cancer took a rafting trip down the Grand Canyon. During that adventure, a webseries documentary was filmed telling the story of Amy and her life as a 20-something living with a Cancer diagnosis, and how it affects her family and friends.
Below is a list of links to the trailer and all of the episodes. Each episode is less than 10 minutes long, so take an hour, and watch. I think this is a powerful story about perspective and our places in this world. I think you can get something out of it regardless of whether or not your life has been touched by Cancer.
Although these videos are available on YouTube, I used the Huffington Post link in case you’d like to read the blog posts that accompany them written by other people in the young adult Cancer community.
