Visit kuac.org/cancerfilm to learn more about this Ken Burns produced series which “matches the epic scale of the disease, reshaping the way the public sees cancer and stripping away some of the fear and misunderstanding that has long surrounded it.”

Join KUAC for an early sneak-peek from the series and a discussion on cancer March 24th, at 5:30 pm in the Fairbanks Memorial Hospital McGowan Room.

Share your story or the story of a loved one on the project’s story wall HERE.
