My Real Boobs Have To Go | Documentary Idea

by M Ross

My 20 year old daughter has to have both breasts removed in the coming months to reduce her risk of breast cancer from an inherited gene she has. A second inherited gene is going to make surgery very difficult. Luckily she is in the hands of the top reconstructive breast surgeon in Europe but even he is worried.

As a professional belly dancer she is striving to put on a show to raise money and awareness of the National Hereditary Breast Cancer helpline that she works for. She is an amazing young lady - beautiful - intelligent - inspiring and knowledgeable.

It's her ambition to find a producer who would like to follow her through surgery appointments, surgery and her show preparation and the recovery from her surgery as, so far, the films that are out there about familial breast cancer are ill-informed and quite pessimistic.

This has to happen fast anyone interested????

great story idea

Thanks for submitting your idea. The fact that your daughter is a belly dancer creates a very interesting (and visual) angle to this story. Have you considered contacting the National Hereditary Breast Cancer organization to see if they have contacts with local filmmakers who may be interested in profiling your daughter's story? Would you consider documenting your daughter's journey on your personal video camera? At least that way you have documented each step of the way and it could possibly be turned into a documentary later. At least you would have some footage for a filmmaker to work with.

Here are some basic tips to follow when shooting video:

By the way, have you heard of Kris Carr? She created a documentary about her journey with cancer. Might be worth checking out.
