From the National Non-Profit Project Pink Comes a Story of Love, Liberation and Laughter:
The Breast Cancer Diaries
For ten years, Ann Murray Paige covered the news, but for the biggest story of her life she turned the camera on herself. When Ann, a former local news reporter and anchor is diagnosed with breast cancer at age 38, she sets up a diary camera in her bedroom.
Ann’s video diaries–raw and true–chronicles a young mother’s nine month journey with breast cancer, punctuated with humor, poignancy and romance.
Along the way, Ann–with characteristic wit–challenges everything from “drive-through” mastectomies to the role breasts play in American society.
The Breast Cancer Diaries is a chronicle of illness met with attitude, symbolized by the “Cancer Sucks” button that Ann pins on her shirt. Throughout it all there is humor; from a hospital flashing scene, to a young son’s attempt to heal his mother with a whoopee cushion.
Director Linda Pattillo, herself an award-winning former network news correspondent (ABC NEWS and CNN) spent 15 years covering wars across the globe. In The Diaries, she covers a far more intimate and personal battle–that of a young woman and mother fighting for her life.
