These three words — nope, not “I love you.” These three words happen to be more along the lines of something more unpleasant, and terribly frightening. They are, “You have cancer.”
These Three Words is also a film exploring how the heart and soul are changed when a life threatening disease takes over.
The film will feature five individuals in various stages of brain cancer, facing the medical and emotional repercussions of diagnosis, including the all too real human will to survive and the challenges of research, clinical trials and insurance, all from some surprising perspectives.
“There is no better time to educate
the world about brain cancer. Coming at the end of Brain Cancer Awareness Month, this is a fitting time to celebrate the research, the doctors and clinicians who help those with this deadly disease,” says Executive Producer Paul A. Roselli, who will lead the production team.
The Rhode Island Film Collaborative (RIFC) will act as the fiscal sponsor for the film. Donations to the film are made to the RIFC. Those funds are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by IRS rules and regulations.
These Three Words, LLC in association with the Rok Bar ‘N’ Grill will also hold a fundraising event and celebration to support the film. The evening will feature a clip from the movie and an original song produced and performed
by brain cancer survivor Ace Diamond and Amber Betz.
Rok Bar ‘N’ Grill owner Brandon Sweet will provide the venue and food for this event. “We care deeply about the impact this disease has on the individuals and their families. We are honored to do our part,” says owner Sweet.
A buffet featuring vegetarian and vegan foods will be among the offerings. A cash bar and valet parking also will be available. The restaurant is handicap accessible for wheelchairs. So, save the date! It’s Tuesday, June 4, 2013, Rok Bar and Grill, 11 Main Street East Greenwich, RI. The event runs from 4:30 – 9 pm.
Admission is $20 per individual or $35 per couple.
