Premiering tonight, a moving documentary, More to Live For, will debut at the Dallas Film Festival starring James Chippendale, cancer survivor and spokesperson in Baylor’s Real Patients. Real Stories. campaign.
Diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia at 32-years-old, Chippendale produced the documentary to bring awarensss about the need for bone marrow donations. The film documents the lives of three men, including James, who are all in need of a bone marrow match to save their lives.
Thankfully, James found his match and has been living a very busy and fulfilling life ever since. Most notably, he helped found the organization The Love, Hope, Strength Foundation, an international, music-centric cancer charity dedicated to providing support for cancer centers, and inspiration to those affected, throughout the world.
James may also look familiar from our “What’s Your Number” video where he proudly displays his number, 94,563—the number of feet he has climbed around the world to help cancer patients in need. James certainly has more to live for indeed.
Watch the trailer for More to Live For and let us know what you think. We’re looking forward to the premiere tonight! Check back next week for a review of the film and behind-the-scenes commentary from the premiere.
And remember, it only takes a few minutes to potentially save someone’s life by registering to donate your bone marrow. Could you be a match?
