My project "F*** Cancer" is a documentary about dealing with kidney cancer from my mother, Jennifers perspective. Jennifer goes into detail about when she found out she had cancer and how she faces it daily by talking about the methods she uses to stay positive. I wanted this production to raise awareness as the sypmtoms of kidney cancer can be easily looked over and isn't spoken about as much as other types of cancers. Jennifer looks healthy and well on the outside however, she is going through a lot within. I feel that many people can relate to her or have met someone like her which makes her story less of a formal documentary and more of a conversation with the audience as the documentary gives an insight into her life and also shows her being vulnerable by allowing us to hear about her journey with stage 4 cancer.
