If I Should Not Return



This short film (14 minutes), aimed towards oncologists, was designed to raise awareness of parenting concerns when a mother’s cancer is considered terminal. The film highlights the importance of doctors’ candid and timely communication about prognosis and treatment planning. ¬†Producer Brian Stabler and his colleagues at UNC Chapel Hill currently use this film as a teaching tool for medical professionals to improve cancer care for patients and their families.

Two fathers from their support group shared their stories in the production of this film. As you will see, these men are touching in their openness, and offer invaluable insight for doctors and their trainees. The film can be viewed here: http://www.singlefathersduetocancer.org/short.do
