In the United States, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
In LIFE INTERRUPTED, three breast cancer survivors, including the filmmaker herself, share their empowering stories of survival. They confront life-altering diagnoses, navigate their disease process and treatment, and rebuild their lives with dignity, humor, and strength.
In an interview with Rethink Breast Cancer, filmmaker Paula Mozen says: “This is the film I wished I could have seen when I was diagnosed with breast cancer… Hearing stories from articulate women who have travelled this road before is invaluable for navigating the treatments and keeping hope alive. Knowledge is power and the successful prevention and treatment of breast cancer depends on it.”
Paula had two lumpectomies, 38 weeks of radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy and then a double mastectomy. Her reconstruction took a difficult 3.5 years.
