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.

    Facing Cancer In Your 20s
    Doctors diagnosed Suleika Jaouad with leukemia when she was 22 years old. “Cancer,” she later wrote, “has forced me to pause my life at a time when my peers are just beginning theirs.”

  2. Dear all,
    I’m currently developing a documentary for a US network about individuals who have been diagnosed with a terminal disease. We want to tell their stories, in their own words.
    The documentary will address the hopes, fears, challenges and aspirations faced by individuals of all ages throughout the United States .
    I am in the process of reaching out to people who might be interested in being part of the project.
    If you are interested in finding out more about what would be an entire self-shot documentary, please do get in touch at sophiebellagamba@gmail.com

    Many thanks,
