What people are saying…
“Breast cancer knows no boundaries. Life Interrupted is a beautiful film telling the story of different women and their battle with breast cancer. The film touches on so many important decisions and struggles that many women face during breast cancer treatment and recurrence.”
– Jodi Weak, Executive Director, Susan G. Komen. Idaho, Montana
“LIFE INTERRUPTED is an engaging film with relatable women who take us through the roller coaster of a breast cancer diagnosis and resulting experiences. This is a very honest, real, brave and accurate film about the experiences of various women after their breast cancer diagnosis.
The film is an excellent catalyst for discussion and support in the quest for knowledge to make the appropriate decision for each individual.
I recommend this film to anyone who wants to UNDERSTAND the physical and emotional experiences that breast cancer is for many women. Newly diagnosed patients, family, friends and caregivers would all benefit from seeing this.”
– Arlene Wylie, 22 year Breast Cancer Survivor, Co-Founder of Bosom Buddies, Breast Cancer Support Group. Bozeman, Montana
“When you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, everything you know is useless and everything you need to know is hard…Having a diagnosis of breast cancer, discussing the disease and its treatment side effects and understanding the impact of a diagnosis on the patient and loved ones are all aspects of the film… ‘Living’ with breast cancer is the challenge and (LIFE INTERRUPTED) will explore this.”
– Pamela Priest Naeve, Director, Community Education, California Prevention Institute of California
