“I am sorry, but you have breast cancer.”
In the United States, one in eight women will hear these shattering words in her lifetime.
LIFE INTERRUPTED, a documentary feature film about breast cancer, intimately chronicles the lives and experiences of three unique survivors–including the filmmaker herself–from diagnosis through treatment, and life beyond. Assumptions and myths about the disease and prevention are explored, as each woman continues on with cancer treatments including chemotherapy, lumpectomy and bilateral mastectomy, to fight for their lives.
These women are confronting a life-altering diagnosis and they respond to their disease process and the rebuilding of their lives with honesty, dignity, humor and grace.
