Surviving Terminal Cancer – watch the full film
Dominic Hill’s Surviving Terminal Cancer film was first aired on World Cancer Day (4 February 2015) and was watched by 400 people affected by a brain tumour at the BFI in London. It was later aired in New York at the Lincoln Centre and watched by over 200 people affected by a brain tumour.
The film argues that the long-term survival of three brain tumour patients who researched and devised their own treatment programmes challenges the orthodox approach to improving cancer treatments.
Visit the Surviving Terminal Cancer website for further details on the film, director and research being undertaken as a result of this film.
