Each day, millions of people receive a diagnosis that will change their lives. Every expectation for how life is supposed to be—even how long it will last—is turned upside down.
For some people, illness begins a journey to live fully. This is the story of EVERYTHING MATTERS.
This film revisits patients of Dr. Ann Webster, a health psychologist and Director Emerita of the Cancer Program at the Benson-Henry Institute in Boston. Ann has spent four decades treating patients who have received life-limiting and terminal diagnoses.
These are stories of courage and compassion and the sheer will to fight another day. Those we follow have survived, and thrived, years longer than their illness indicated. It is a fascinating and uplifting story, despite the challenges and losses many have faced since diagnosis.
The film discovers another remarkable story, too: Ann Webster herself.
