We Are Raising $1 Million For a Docuseries
Each year 1.7 million new cancer cases will be diagnosed. Over time, 40% of us will get a diagnosis. (Source: American Cancer Society)
Post treatment, survivors face a host of psychological, social, physical and spiritual issues.
Our current system does not address this need.
Our docuseries does.
42% of the budget is for the first film in the docuseries. This covers pre and post interviews with the seven Travelers and all travel expenses:
|Music and Legal Clearance||$26,600|
|Errors and Omissions||$5,000|
The remainder of the budget covers staff, marketing, technology, legal and accounting. 8.29% of the overall budget has been allocated to fiscal sponsor fees, although we anticipate the actual cost to be considerably less.
Any excess funds will go towards marketing expenses and/or the next film in the docuseries.
Pilot Study for Social Media

The Audience and The Need
Forty percent of us will have a cancer diagnosis.
Directly or indirectly, cancer touches every family, every community and every business in the U.S., and around the globe.
And the need for post treatment health is unaddressed by our current health care system.
After surgery, chemo and radiation, and all the side effects (some of which may be permanent), patients are simply left to figure out a path forward, towards health and to a “new normal”.
But what’s a new normal when your life has been turned upside down?
The seven people that go on CancerRoadTrip are on a quest for health. In their quest, lies our quest: to find peace and joy through the twists and turns of life with and after cancer.
And to share the journey, so that we all can learn.
Our thanks to the New Mexico Film Foundation, our fiscal sponsor for this docuseries.
