THE CHILD WHO FADES AWAY
The child who fades away is a 5 minutes short film in English written and created by me - with 0 budget and an all volunteers crew and cast - to shed a light on DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma), a type of childhood cancer that affects children almost exclusively and for which the survival rate is 0%.
A CHILD WHO GETS DIAGNOSED WITH DIPG TODAY HAS THE SAME PROGNOSI OF A CHILD DIAGNOSED 40 YEARS AGO.
