14 Pews presents The C Word
Cancer is no laughing matter – but the archaic way people are beating it is. With a dose of good humor, heart, and a touch of rock-n’-roll beat, The C Word reveals the forces at play keeping people sick and dares to ask: If up to 70 percent of cancer deaths are preventable … what are people waiting for? And, in asking the question, director Meghan L. O’Hara reveals astounding truths that no one is talking about on a grand scale — until now.
At its heart are powerful, twin stories: one from celebrated French neuroscientist and cancer revolutionary Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, the other from The C Word’s own director, and cancer survivor 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.
Narrated by Morgan Freeman, The C Word message is simple, life-changing, radical: we can beat cancer before cancer beats us. Filmmaker Meghan L. O’Hara will be on hand for an insightful talk-back after the screening.
