“Recently we watched “Crazy Sexy Cancer,” an inspiring film about Kris Carr’s experiences as a young 30-something woman diagnosed with a rare and incurable cancer. In Kris’ words, she “dove in head first” into the world of holistic care and wellness, and what could have been a devastatingly sad documentary turns into a funny and personal exploration of the ups and downs of cancer.
What struck me most about Kris’ story was how open she is. Nothing is secret, everything is shared. In Crazy Sexy Cancer, we see Kris try out different diets, meditation exercises, and more, all in the effort to understand her body and a Stage IV cancer diagnosis. But more than that, we see the emotional toll that the cancer journey can take. Kris bares her deepest feelings to the camera and us – and it’s truly amazing. She speaks with other patients and survivors about their experiences, too, so we get a glimpse into different perspectives on cancer.
A motivating and touching documentary, I would recommend Crazy Sexy Cancer to anyone affected by a brain tumor diagnosis – survivors and caregivers alike.” – Katrina Fortner. Grey Matters. Crazy Sexy Cancer – a Documentary of Survival.6 January 2015
