WATCH THE FEATURE LENGTH DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE SHARING AMERICA'S MARROW JOURNEY!
"In Our Bones is the inspiring tale of Sam Kimura, a young woman with a deadly bone marrow disease who sets off on a road trip around America with her sister, Alex, and best friend, Taylor Shorten, in search of a donor match. Infused with humor and charm, her crusade for herself and for other patients needing transplants forces her to confront her mortality, uncover family secrets and get out of the passenger seat of her own life.
Crowded together in the their vamped-up SUV for 24,000 miles, and hosting hundreds of bone marrow drives as they pursue their mission to turn adversity into a meaningful adventure, the girls experience moments of sheer beauty and wonder, generosity, compassion, exhilaration, depression, desperation, and overwhelming exhaustion. The strains on friendship and siblinghood bringing them to the edge and back again, their story is a testament to loyalty, trust, love, and commitment to something greater than themselves."
