tellher2.ca Inspired and driven by the stories of Canadian women with HER2+ breast cancer, About Her is the first film of its kind and an incredibly important piece of the HER2+ storytelling and community-building experience.
About Her captures the brave and honest stories of women across Canada who have been diagnosed with this aggressive form of breast cancer. They are a diverse and compelling group of young women. Some live in rural areas, some in urban centres, some are married, some are mothers, but each of them speak candidly about the shock of diagnosis and the emotional experience of confronting mortality and finding new hope for the future.
This 15-minute documentary conveys the power of storytelling and aims to inspire women with Her2+ breast cancer, their families and health care providers to share their experiences and connect with others in a new supportive online community at tellher2.ca.
About Her premiered at the second annual Breast Fest Film Festival, held on November 20 – 22, 2009 at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. For more information visit breastfestfilmfest.com.
