Big Coat Productions Presents: I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THIS!
World broadcast premiere October 23, 2010 – 12:00pm ET on the W Network
From the Gemini award-winning production company Big Coat Productions, executive producers Catherine Fogarty and Maria Armstrong deliver an engaging documentary on breast-cancer, I Don’t Have Time For This!
The in-depth and revealing rumination on life and attitude, follows five young, vivacious and courageous Canadian women who will not let breast cancer get in the way of their lives. This is a premiere you don’t want to miss, Saturday October 23 on the W Network.
“This is one of the most important projects that Big Coat has every under taken,” says BC Executive and Producer Maria Armstrong. “If it gets one woman – a woman of any age – to get a mammogram, then we have accomplished what we set out to do.”
A diagnosis of breast cancer for women in their twenties or early thirties is becoming increasingly common and is much more aggressive. It is unexpected, devastating and quickly consumes every aspect of their lives. But what happens when you’ve got so many other things competing for attention alongside your life-threatening illness – dating, marriage, school, new careers, pregnancy, raising children?
This documentary takes us on a journey of hope and fear as we watch each of these young women absorb the reality of breast cancer while trying to get on with the rest of their lives.
The documentary follows the personal journeys of 35-year-old Clare, a happily married teacher and mother, Crystal, 34, a vibrant casting director and mother of a toddler, 30-year-old Janelle, who is planning the wedding of her dreams, Sylvia, 25, a young world traveler trying to find her passion as she dabbles in modeling, and recent graduate Claudia, 24, newly-engaged and looking forward to starting a career, marriage and parenthood. These women have too much to live for. Lumpectomies, mastectomies, chemotherapy, radiation, egg extraction, treatment schedules – who’s got the time?
