Life can take us to surreal places. So here I find myself, a full time cancer warrior, an accidental cannabis advocate and a first time film maker.
I have known Michael for years, but had not seem him since my diagnosis. When we ran into each other and had a coffee to catch up, I exploded with my exciting news that high dose cannabis oil shrank my tumor. Over the next week the idea for a short film wouldn't leave my mind. This is my legacy project.
