On Saturday, October 12th, the Charleston Music Hall will host A Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Film Event hosted by Seinfeld actor John O’Hurley to raise awareness for Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC). The event will be presented by the Swain Department of Nursing at The Citadel.
The night will consist of a double documentary feature, Marathons For Mom and Love Always, Mom, showcasing two powerful stories surrounding metastatic breast cancer, benefiting Racing for MBC & The Cyan Gray Hope Foundation.
In the first film, Marathons for Mom, one mother’s 6-year battle with Metastatic Breast Cancer inspires a son’s year long journey of 6 marathons across the US. Marathons for Mom is a story of growth and survival, of finding hope through action.
In the second film of the evening, Love Always, Mom, Tricia Russo documents her struggle to become a mother while battling MBC. With startling intimacy, Russo and her husband allow cameras to shoot not only meetings with doctors, but the process of becoming parents. This is not just a film about fighting MBC, infertility, IVF, egg donation, and surrogacy, but a story of motherly love and a love letter to an unborn child.
