"One Way: Journey to this Moment"
Experience the story of TC Native Michelle Grinsel. When Michelle learned she had stage IV cancer, she knew there was only One Way forward. She couldn't go back to her carefree existence. With her fighting spirit and forward momentum, this life threatening diagnosis has led her to find peace and solace in savoring each moment. This film isn’t just about cancer. It is about choosing your attitude in order to overcome adversity and making the most of your time on Earth. Michelle's vulnerability and honest admissions have made her a spokesperson for resilience, strength and abundant living. The film promotes the message that life is precious and you don't need a life threatening diagnosis to savor it. You will leave feeling empowered, reflective and wanting to embrace each moment… no matter what comes your way. Not Rated, 30 mins. Q&A with Michelle Grinsel via Skype!
