When three millennials are stalled in the prime of their lives by advanced cancer
diagnoses, the discovery of their own isolation and lack of community ignites a
purpose in each of them to become activists and create a community for young
adults silently suffering with cancer and other chronic illnesses. Having
followed Emily, Elly, and Jesus for four years, GENERATION HOPE is a 90 minute
cinema verite style made for television documentary which will be narrated by a
celebrity deeply connected to this cause. This story delves into the
psychological impact and physical challenges one has when diagnosed with cancer
in early adulthood. The documentary is geared toward young adults ages 18
- 32 and those impacted by their illnesses in an effort to educate millennials
on the importance of healthcare and inspire activism within a generation.
