Mister Cancer

A documentary by Ashley Sarink and Esmée Kneppers (Fontys Hogeschool, Tilburg, The Netherlands)

You survived cancer and everyone around you thinks you are strong again. But you have to get up each day with a heavy heart and tears all over your face when looking in the mirror. You are not who you were before cancer came into your life.

Nowadays you often see successful stories about cancer. What people often don’t realise is that the fight for many survivors isn’t over yet. Lots of people are still dealing with the aftermath of the illness.

One of these survivors is Marit van Ruremonde. At the age of 17 she was diagnosed with cancer. This year she celebrates her 5thyear of being cancer free.   She is still struggling with the fears and insecurities. This story of Marit is been told in “Meneer Kanker”.
