“I am sorry, but you have breast cancer.” 

In the United States, one in eight women will hear these shattering words in her lifetime.

LIFE INTERRUPTED, a film of great intimacy, features empowering stories of breast cancer survivors told through unflinching graphic imagery from the survivor’s perspective. These women are confronting a life-altering diagnosis, and respond to their disease process and the rebuilding of their lives with honesty, dignity, humor and grace. Each woman sheds light on the emotional and physical roadblocks they overcame and what we can learn today from their persistence.

LIFE INTERRUPTED is distinguished for its diversity and inclusiveness, representing survivors of widely diverging ages from 27 to 68; ethnicities including, African American, Native American, and Jewish American with a wide range of socio-economic and geographic backgrounds.
