Cancer Rebellion brings to light the hidden life of the modern day teenager and young adult who has been diagnosed with cancer. It explores their dreams, struggles and fears with a familiarity that only a fellow cancer survivor can bring. In an effort to come to terms with his own cancer diagnosis, director Hernan Barangan takes to the road to find other people who have also been diagnosed with cancer in their youth. On this road trip across America, Cancer Rebellion maps out the path that all young cancer patients travel from diagnosis to aftermath. In a country where one teen or young adult is diagnosed with cancer every 8 minutes, these teenagers aren’t going down without a fight.
