Final episode in this “season” of Highly Evolved Human. This one is special. This ep is 10 minutes long and plays like a short film. Very happy to be involved with the project and with SoulPancake.
I am delighted to have directed these videos for the new website, highlyevolvedhuman.com. The stories are based on the things that happened to a friend (and the writer and star of these vids) Nick Ross who lived through cancer in his 20’s. Throughout his experience, he felt like there wasn’t really a cancer resource that spoke to him or to people his age. So he created this website to fill that void. The idea is to cull stories like this from any young person who has had cancer, who is currently living with cancer, or from anyone who has simply had their lives touched by someone with cancer- pretty much all of us, really. Then we can expand the website into a thoughtful, sincere, and even funny place to share thoughts, ideas and stories. To share in a collective experience. To humanize the disease and to not be afraid of it. The website can serve as the resource Nick and anybody else like Nick, was looking for.
Every young person who has had a cancer experience has a unique and remarkable story. We’ve all endured life changing adversity and become beacons of hope to others touched with the disease. Highly Evolved Human is committed to producing and sharing true stories of the young adult cancer experience so we can collectively alter the conversation away from the fear that comes with diagnoses and toward hope for a cancer-free future.
