    the power of filmTHE POWER OF FILM
    Prepare to Live's documentary style films introduce viewers to real life role models who share their personal experiences, explain what to expect and provide unique insights and guidance for dealing with, and perhaps even defeating, cancer. And while the films may be entertaining, their true purpose is to serve as an invaluable medical resource that will improve, inspire, and save people's lives.

    The first film currently in production, features five people with five different types of cancer in five different stages of dealing with it, from a 29-year old diagnosed with leukemia less then one year ago, to a person diagnosed with 6 months to live at age 19 - in 1978. Watch the trailer online now.
