Surviving Breast Cancer

NDR/ARTE, 2008, 45 min.

A film about surviving breast cancer

When breast cancer is diagnosed, it comes as a shock, one that the women concerned have to come to terms with. Thanks to the rapid advances in medical research, the survival rate of breast cancer patients has increased enormously in recent years. Many women find their daily life radically transformed and must learn to live with cancer as a disease which no longer needs to be lethal, even when metastases recur. Jutta Rosbach has followed two patients along this difficult path, ever since they were diagnosed with cancer.
