How I live
How I Live with Cancer chronicles the journey of children with cancer in low and middle-income countries. By following their journeys from diagnosis through treatment, we witness many of the complex issues facing patients, families and healthcare providers. Documentary style observational filmmaking provides a window into both the interpersonal networks and healthcare systems that support and guide families through treatment. Amidst some of life’s most difficult situations, stories of innovation and resilience emerge. howilivewithcancer.com
