New truths revealed and rock our world when it comes to our understanding and battle against cancer. It's time for cancer to be afraid of us.
With a dose of good humor, heart, and a touch of rock—n—roll beat, THE C WORD reveals the forces at play keeping us sick and dares to ask: if up to 70% of cancer deaths are preventable...what are we waiting for?
At the heart of THE C WORD are powerful, twin narratives: one from celebrated French neuroscientist and cancer revolutionary Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, the other from THE C WORD's own director, Meghan L. O'Hara. After braving the journey from diagnosis to wellness, Meghan and David join forces on a wild ride of discovery; including hidden science, the absurdity of the status quo, and a vibrant cast of characters changing the game.
Winner of 7 awards, THE C WORD asks us to reconsider our approach and advocate instead for society—wide lifestyle and systemic changes. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, the message is simple, life—changing, radical: we can beat cancer before cancer beats us.
“Immensely captivating and persuasive, "The C Word" is a trenchant film with a crucial message that bears repeating. ”—LA Times
“Morgan Freeman narrates and executive produced a documentary that addresses the failings in Western medicine's approach to cancer. Against the odds, the film is as vibrant as it is personal and urgent. ”—The Hollywood Reporter
