The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is proud to be joining forces with World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation to help fight childhood cancers through the promotion of the upcoming release of the award-winning motion picture, WAYS TO LIVE FOREVER.
The touching film is based on the best-selling British children's novel by Sally Nicholls about a spirited 12-year-old named Sam who has leukemia. This ultimately uplifting tale centers on Sam's journey with friend and fellow cancer patient Felix through a series of particularly poignant and sometimes humorous moments as they strive to fulfill their dreams, leave their mark, and make the most of the time that they have.
The film will be released in 2013 to select theaters nationwide, and a portion of proceeds will benefit LLS and other cancer-related organizations that have teamed up with World Wide to promote both the picture and its message. WWMPC is urging viewers to donate to LLS to help beat cancer.
"Approximately 90 percent of children under the age of 15 survive acute lymphocytic leukemia thanks in part to advances supported by LLS," offers Louis J. DeGennaro, chief mission officer of LLS. "Unfortunately, 1 in 10 children do not survive and too many of those that do suffer long-term effects from today's toxic therapies. We will continue to fund research until every child can live a long and healthy life." Read more here.
