I have officially broken my cardinal rule about watching tv and movies that involve people dying or people having cancer or heaven forbid both. But boy am I glad that I did.
Recently I was contacted by the World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation. They had a great movie called “Ways to Live Forever” about a boy with leukemia being released in the near future and they needed our help spreading the word about the film (seemingly based upon a best selling novel). Now, considering my very strict rule, I was hesitant. And then I watched a trailer. I told them yes. A resounding yes. (By the way, this is not the official trailer which is currently being produced.)
The whole family sat down recently and watched the screener of this film. It was wonderful. And I cannot wait to tell you all about it, what we thought about it, and how it has inspired us in an upcoming episode of our webseries, “The Real Homeschoolers of the Boro”.
In the meantime, you can start learning more about the movie. Some of the actors have recorded intro videos… learn more from Robbie Kay, Ella Purnell, and Alex Etel… three amazing child actors! Expect more YouTube videos from the actors soon! See what others are saying about this amazing, uplifting film about life. More reactions can be found at this link too.
My favorite thing about the film? A portion of the proceeds for the film go toward various organizations such as the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and various children’s hospitals. My own business does this too so this is an act that is near and dear to my heart.
And check out these supporters of the film!
