Told with courageous humor and unflinching candor, "Cancerpants" tells the story of spirited and self-aware 36-year-old Austinite Rochelle “Ro” Poulson’s battle to stay strong after an unexpected diagnosis of stage III breast cancer. It charts Ro and her partner Julie’s emotional odyssey as they engage their entire circle of friends, family and local community to aid Ro’s quest to find meaning, life enrichment and personal growth. Ro refuses to be “just a body,” and throughout the film she demonstrates how to sustain a constructively fighting spirit within the experience of serious illness. We watch her undergo chemo, a (failed) lumpectomy, a double mastectomy, radiation and a brain tumor scare. Ro embodies a mindful warrior throughout her breast cancer experience, lending strength to all those who share her journey, inspiring confidence and trust.
