Welcome to the Chasing Rainbows blog…

November 30, 2008

We’re glad you found us!

This blog began as an offshoot of a film project, a documentary produced by Pat Taylor on behalf of her daughter Sara Taylor Gibson, called Chasing Rainbows: Young Adults Living With Cancer. The film’s official site is here, and you can see an 8-minute trailer below. Since¬†Chasing Rainbows was released in 2007, Pat has screened it all over the world, and in the course of this work has gotten involved in ¬†many other exciting projects within the young adult cancer community. She continues to blog about her endeavours here (scroll down for the latest news!).

If you’d like to see the full length (43 minutes) film, you can order a copy of the DVD by contacting: pat@chasingrainbows.ca. You can also watch it online (in sections) at JimmyteensTV, where it is available in English, with Spanish subtitles, or dubbed into French.
