the-c-wordCancer is no laughing matter – but the archaic way we are battling 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 us sick and dares to ask: if up to 70% of cancer deaths are preventable … what are we waiting for?

At the heart of THE C WORD are powerful, twin narratives: one from celebrated French neuroscientist and cancer revolutionary Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, the other from THE C WORD’s own director, 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.

Winner of 7 awards, THE C WORD asks us to reconsider our approach and advocate instead for society-wide lifestyle and systemic changes. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, the message is simple, life-changing, radical: we can beat cancer before cancer beats us.
