Crazy Sexy Cancer
The personal video diary of Kris Carr, a young actress, photographer, and filmmaker. Carr’s struggle with cancer begins after a visit to the doctor, following a particularly difficult yoga class. Initially thinking it was a yoga-related injury, Carr is devastated to learn she has a rare form of cancer, epithelioid hemangioendothelioma¬†(EHE). Despite its rarity, Carr is told that her tumors are not behaving aggressively, and so her doctor advises that she “watch and wait” for two months before having more tests to determine whether the tumors change, grow, or remain the same.¬†Despite the grim prognosis, Carr refuses to accept her sickness as an end to her life, and sets out to explore alternative methods with which to fight her cancer.
