However Long:

How would you live your life if you discovered you had an incurable disease?  Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) is also known as stage 4-breast cancer.  Approximately 30% of women with breast cancer will have the disease spread, and receive the diagnosis of MBC. Despite early detection and new treatments, we are not doing enough for the 40,000 women who continue to die from the disease.

This documentary looks at the experience of the women who are living with the disease with no cure in sight, the researchers who are trying to cure it, and the activists who are fighting for more funding and better treatment.

Ries & Snyder, Utah's HIV/AIDS Medical Pioneers:

The story of two fearless medical professionals who provided world-class care in conservative, Mormon Utah in the 1980's and 90's when no one else would. Facing adversity and ostracism, Dr. Kristen Ries along with her physician assistant, Maggie Snyder, forged a path of compassion, discovery and quality care for a marginalized population that everyone else seemed willing to just let die.
