(www.BlacksinHollywood.com) – With the goal to create a new style of cancer related content to replace the stale “talking head” style medically-focused videos on our cancer pages, About.com is casting real-life cancer patients/survivors to allow viewers to get first-hand accounts and tips from the people who are actually living with/surviving these cancers.
About.com will hire a “survivor” for each type of cancer listed below and have them tell their story in a documentary style interview including their experience from diagnosis to treatment, recovery and beyond.
Compensation or charitable donations will be provided for all as well as transportation, hair and makeup, etc. Filming commitment is limited, no more than a few hours per person. There will be brief pre-interview that can be conducted via SKYPE but we will keep time commitments limited. The cancers we would like to cover are as follows: Leukemia – Prostate – Cervical – Colon
