The Cinequest Film & Creativity Festival recognizes that treating and curing cancer is priority one for all of us. That’s why, with the generous support of the Wolff family, the festival is once again honoring the work of Stand Up To Cancer.
As part of that effort, the festival is screening Hope for Breast Cancer so all festival goers will have a chance to see this important documentary about not just surviving but thriving after being diagnosed with cancer.Hope for Breast Cancer tells the story of Angie Lima, who found out she had stage 2b breast cancer after her young daughter accidentally head-butted her breast. Lima threw herself into fighting the disease trying everything from chemotherapy to natural intervention after a trip to a clinic in Mexico. The one constant through it all was her bedrock personal faith.
Stand Up To Cancer funds and develops the newest and most promising cancer treatments to help patients today. It has funded more than 180 clinical trials and pledged more than $600 million to the work of 1,600 scientists and researchers.
The collaborative research programs supported by Stand Up To Cancer receive 100% of the funds from public donations made to the organization. This funding brings together scientists and researchers from across disciplines and institutions in order to break down the barriers to innovation.
The Cinequest Film & Creativity Festival is elated to join with the Wolff Family in supporting Stand Up To Cancer and presenting screenings of Hope for Breast Cancer on March 11 and 15 at the Century Downtown 20 in Redwood City, and on March 14 at the Hammer Theatre in Downtown San Jose.
